Shenzhen Dreams

Shenzhen Dreams

May this new Arduino
Be the final last pentomino
In the gaps of my understanding

Inebriated cyber punk dreams
One-click, contaminated streams
Start a chain reaction of manufacturing

Oh Shenzhen dreams
Humankind, lost in regret
Milk and honey turned silicon and sweat
Could the clock be ever turned back?

But gadgets have been produced
Progress has been computed
Metrics have been achieved

Open the package
Blue LEDs flickering bright
Heart pulsing fast
Datasheets, to inspect and dive
Hosanna in the highest

Be glad
Now you’re a maker
Endless prototypes to be displayed
In the industrial landscape
Until you meet your maker


I'm a cat-shadow floating in the web.
