Could we be travelling on Route 666?

Enter the digital marketplace,

Hyperlinked retail in space,

No need for bricks or mortar,

Always on and always open.

@

Fuelled by emerging technology,

Connecting buyers with sellers,

Trading down digital corridors,

Earth shrinks to small world.

@

Affiliated shop front windows,

Curating products on multiple sites,

Consumers advocate merchandise,

The digital shopper so switched on.

@

Browsing tablets in their hands,

Thumbs navigate their digital journey,

Minds occupied with connections,

Lined to a mobile support system.

@

Search algorithms seek keywords,

Hunters never click past first page,

Screening price and benefit,

What’s your story, what’s your price?

@

Consumerism now community based,

Blogging and sharing information,

Remarketing social content for free,

A new self-centred “me” engagement.

@

Addictive trips on crowded highways,

Constantly hell-riding the social web,

Digital lifestyles create beastly chaos,

Could we be travelling on Route 666?

My Addiction

My Addiction

When you wake me in the morning,

I caress your lovely face,

Ours is an intimate relationship,

You and I constantly together,

You are my addiction.

 @

You are smart, you are connected,

With you, I’m never bored,

You know all my friends,

I would be lost without you,

You are my addiction.

 @

I await your calls, your emails,

Your tweets and updates.

I check them all the time,

On the bus and with my friends,

You are my addiction.

 @

We shop together, play together,

You help me all the time,

You’re my best friend,

The holder of my secrets,

You are my addiction.

@

When I hold you in my hands,

You make me feel secure,

We travel everywhere as one,

We are constantly connected,

You are my addiction.

 @

You keep me so informed.

If I lost you, I’d lose my mind,

My existence matters with you,

My indispensable Samsung Galaxy,

You are my addiction.
