What’s the Social-ution?

Isolated 1

PART 1

Society is remote.

Where the robots live

Estranged

In cell to cell,

Padded walls,

Talking sideways through the wire or the wave,

Satellite inn, alone.

As I was going to St Ives…

as-i-was-going-to-st-ivesAs I was going to St Ives, I met a man with seven lies.
Each lie had seven facts.
Each fact has seven pacts.
