The Worldwide Child:

Technology in it’s infancy:

The worldwide child blinks.

This child will never learn.

And demonstrates worldwide links;

The child is taught every subject that can earn.

Worldwide child splutters it’s anger and violence.

Demonstrating sensationalism.

What a clever child; as askance I glance.

Out pours the child’s realism.

How the clever child entertains us all.

And masterminds, forecasts and projections.

Worldwide child portrays it all, without forestall.

As millions daily decide for the child, it’s selections.

Omnipotently, the child stretched it’s sight.

All seeing and being: past, present and future, portrayed.

Into the heavens it eventually took flight.

Whilst “time”; the child waylaid.
