A poor trade

Once upon a time people used to waste their lives in search of treasure, riches and more

They’d travel the world looking for that one thing

Many never found it

Yet even that life is far better than the one people live now

Today people no longer waste their lives in search of treasure

They waste in in front of a simple LED screen wishing they had what they’re looking at

No longer do people have to travel to seek their desires

Now all they need do is google them and wish they had them

We’ve traded our lives for a virtual currency

A very poor trade in my weary eyes.
