Contract with the modern world

A poem

Peered over my phone

To live a little

Found it hard to escape the zone

Like the screen, an idea so brittle

Were minds once engines of fantasy?

Did present always need proof?

Now that minds are full of ‘factasy’

Ideas struggle to remain bulletproof

A bunch of days become weak
