comparisons/to sacrifice

the essence of a human
water mixed with blood
slapped in the skull a brain
the pounding of the heart
as the nerves crouch slightly
at chalkboard fingernails
bone in mouths open wide
preparing to masticate
preparing to assimilate
to introduce something new
into the body
bones wired with veins>br>
so the blood
can pour into the organs

pulsing in the ear
throbbing in the muscles
as the chewed food digests
flowing too
providing strength

turn the monitor off
the speakers too
we are done here
let's shut down the CPU
unplug the mouse
it needs arms no more
nor mouth
nor eyes
nor cooling system

unplug the modem
no need for connection anymore
there's no one to connect to
they've all downloaded themselves
they've left me to live in a virtual world
with virtual friends
virtual ideas
virtual rockstars
on virtual dreamscapes
reality has been pushed aside
to take the backseat
as in real life they slave and toil
refrigerate themselves at the end of the day
those of us left alone to balance the shift
but for unconcerned
we are never to be honored
our duty is clear
time has proven the reason
these times are giving the call
we shall answer
