Kaleidoscope: Technology

Kaleidoscope

Technology

Motorways are the limbs
of computers
The runaway atom
is running all over
the countryside.

Technology,
I never realised
the significance
of teeth on cogs before.

Resistance is futile
Progress
is a one way street
during rush hour.

Mechanism
I’ve seen the sunset
three nights running
Please re-adjust the sun.

Science has big feet
and the crocus is frail
The runaway atom
is running all over
the countryside.
