Spider

A spider’s dragnet catching the wind over a maglev bullet train,
Write me a spider to craw the web, catch me if you can,
I am on a one way ticket to paradise, let me craw to a better,
Tomorrow, let me trawl, find what I do not know and see the Light,

The Internet is a sea of human nature, a vast cloud of flesh,
A great library of Alexandria, information is power,
But like all power, there are those who want to keep it,
For themselves, Zuckerberg and Gates, Facebook and Google,

Now, as far as I know, and I might be wrong though I am right,
Nobody has ever put up the U.S.’s nuclear missiles on the Internet.
I mean, it’s not something I’ve heard about, at least according to,
The Internets, hey did you see the latest Grumpy Cat meme?

Certainly water coolers and bulletin boards are more interesting,
Now there is an unlimited supply of posters and funny jokes,
What with the arctic ice melting, ISIL exploding in Syria and Iraq,
With constant war and death, and that certain uneasiness,

That you feel when your boss Googles your Facebook page,
We all need a good laugh, yea, I want to write a spider to trawl,
Trawl the web and fish for Grumpy Cat memes,
I want to bury my head in the sand and forget Ferguson,

I want to forget Jihad John, I am tired of silicon valley,
I want a hut in the woods, ten acres and a mule,
The Amish have it right, the only cloud in their towns,
Are those that bring rain, too bad a storm is coming.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
