Need to Know

A poem about modern media consumption.

By: TC Schiller

As dawn breaks,
news breaks,
news they say I need to know.

My home screen, unread count,
making me ashamed, full of doubt,
when I don’t heed what’s in my feed.

The NY Times feeling kind and,
bringing me my morning briefing?
Like I’m some kinda CEO.

Life can’t be a board meeting,
I’m sitting here bored reading,
what Facebook says I.

Want to know,
have to know,
need to know.

This poem is a meditation on the negative impact of over-using technology. Learn more about the impact of technology on our daily lives from Baronness Professor Susan Greenfield here.
