Asimov’s Dream

Capitalism, laziness, and greed,
Asimov’s dream never stood a chance.
Creation, progress, withheld, controlled,
The betterment of self over humanity.
Entertainment over progress,
Shortcuts to an easier life.
Comfort sans necessity,
Soothe us, feed us, entertain us.
In control of the machine,
Enslaved to technology —
The renaissance of human stupidity.
