TECHNO-COMMUNISM, a poem

A beautiful poem, here preserved for posterity, by two unknown renegades.

Submitted by Choccy on August 22, 2010

Just mechanized blades slashing about everywhere
An atmosphere utterly hostile to human life
Hopefully, eventually the technology will expand to the entire solar system,
Until eventually all of reality is covered by a beautiful megamachine

Not even a weed will grow
Anywhere
The planet will just be mechanical noise
Heard by no one
Felt by nothing

Imagine that glorious noise!
Grinding metal, rocks being broken, for no reason
The last life being crushed
The last tree being ripped out
The technology will seek out the last living thing, and destroy it

It would create the best i-phone in the world
With no one to use it, would just lie there
Until super-ceded by the inevitably better model.

Quite a disturbing pic. You know in Star Wars theres that planet thats entirely city -- thats the aim civilisation moves to, even tho its impossible, and even tho its not conscious. Expand or die. Well, its going to die.

Coruscant. Isaac Asimov had a planet-wide city, Trantor, in his Foundation series several decades before Star Wars.

this poem is flawed because it is made of human language and appeals to human emotions.

Just like the global countryside will encircle the cities. One of these days.

Talking about beauty, writing poems about death and seeing only desolation in the future.
