Technological Traps

I too used to believe 
in advancements and progression
now a Luddite leaning
toward simplicity
For rebellion's no longer in style
all fashionably clone
in appearance, opinion, even art
as many artists no longer express
but recreate fads
for monetary gain

Certain aspects of this are cyclical
as historical records show
but the digital dark age 
promotes gluttony and 
overfeeding the self, the ego

...and the once helping hands 
open to ideas
are but closed fists gripping shit
unwilling to share even that
