Information Highway.

Its global mind seeps
through walls topped by barbed wire,
and drifts across electrified borders.

We can get lost in so much information

A digital library at our fingertips
it's open architecture is a framework
for our research and choice

at speeds our mind gulps down - no time to process

We leave a trail of crumbs
where the global village meets to spew
and chew cloud computing.

but in the quiet womb of night - we find clarity.
