On Electronic Communication

a poem by John Starks, USA

Our thoughts and words move at the speed of light,
And they now prove what we cannot retract,
Though they may disappoint of else excite
Those long committed to good will or tact.
We now must ponder what has eagle's wings -
We now must ponder what we might delay,
As what we'd send has voice and ever sings
Of what we'd obfuscate or else betray.
Hence we, dilemma bound, compelled to face
Our hearts' quick "yes", or else our minds' quick "no",
Must meditate or else pick up the pace
Of writing what we feel compelled to show.
Ah! we may yet say "yes", as friends may read
What to express relates somehow to need.
