Entertained to Death


John Citizen he led a busy life
Between his movies and shows on TV
Computer games, the news-reports of strife
Around the world, viewing each DVD
Released. He had so many things to read:
Newsfeeds, email, websites, and lots of texts
By SMS, voicemail. For all these need
His quick replies – as everyone expects.
He worked his job – and got paid for the chore.
He had so much to do when he got home!
His narrowed interests narrowed evermore.
He never realised that he lived: alone.
And so John lived. And died. His time on earth
Had achieved nothing worthwhile since his birth.
John Citizen expired with a last breath
The man had entertained himself to death.
