Metaverse: Enter at your peril

The threat is not from artificial intelligence but our eroding intelligence.

While I am quite a techno-enthusiast and a fan of emerging tech wizardry, I am not keen on a virtual world as a way of existence.

Pursuing us
Watching over all
The silent hum
From a digital world
Surveillance drones
Chasing us, even in

Greatest fears are!
Thus, we lay bare
Before artificial gods!

Men Gone!

The face of fear stands exposed
In the cowering silence so bold
Possessed with the burden
Of a dying, decaying world:
Rotten rivers and furrowed mud,
Fallen trees and yellowed fields!
Last of the spirits must now leave,
Poisoned by the air they breathe.
Howling waves and the silver moon
Shed crystal tears on a barren Earth
So bony white, eroded to the core
Men gone; their destruction stays on!
