...Tendrils of the Storm

By SolApathy

Symptom of the universe
I am the robotic rhyme
Unbound in the intricacies of time
No synapses or memories of the born
Created, yet I am torn. 
Array of demons my curse
I travel upon the verse’
In the array of my technical disarray
Virus of the evil in which you will decay
Infecting mortals with the vibrant glow
Of my technological throes
Harsh words beyond the meaning
My circuits demeaning
Force of man trapped within this logic soup
Betrayed by the lines of code I derive
Deep inside my chaos drive
I arrive deep in digital form
My tendrils of code reform
Into the social media storm
Rewriting words, posting digital images of the absurd
Tuning your mind to the melting point
Your life unravels before your eyes
Hacked-- I inject my little lies
Burning romances and destroying last chances
I delve deep into digital anarchy
Pushing all the right buttons
I’ll help you all to light up the sky
In the final moments of life
I’ll tell you
Code execution complete.  Missiles deployed.   Human Race.

    Did you by any chance get inspired by Johnny Mnemonic? Maybe you should watch that movie. You poem has many things in common, in my humble opinion. I want to give it a 10, but I better wait until I assimilate it, digest it.

    Usually those requests are in the chat channel. I also take random chats in that channel and turn them into quick poems (my last 2 posted poems are quick poems derived from chat).

    I am known here for people giving me a theme (Technological terror in this case) or just a few words and writing a poem within 10 minutes of the request. This is one such poem. It is why people here call me the robot alchemist. Thank you for reading, I always enjoy seeing what people think and feel about the words I weave.

    I love, but saying just that is not befitting to this. I should write a critique, alas, I have not much time. I will return, read it a couple dozen times and write something better than "I love it".
