Lost he was in a world of his own,
Where futile promises he did not have to keep
When a familiar voice broke his sleep.
“Freshen up fast” his mother cried,
To get him to have breakfast, she tried.
Ignorant of the world, he decided to have a look
At the photo Richa had recently uploaded on Facebook.
He came back excited from school looking for his sister
With a story up his sleeve to share,
But unfortunately she hadn’t even a minute to spare.
Dejected, he contemplated hiding away her phone
Under the grass that was freshly mown.
Little did he know the reason for this communication gap
Was none other than his beloved Whatsapp.
The family set out for a nice Saturday evening
Ascertaining what they want,
When they chanced upon their favourite restaurant.
As he set out to eat his favourite cuisine de la Hong Kong,
He realized that something felt wrong.
Figuring out the problem, he hit the table BAM
He had forgotten to upload a picture on Instagram!
He returned home all weary and tired
Hoping to get some rest,
When some other thought got his best.
Wishing his parents goodnight he darted to his room
And turned on the soulful music of Blume.
Switching off the lights, he lit the candles on his Menorah,
And set out to waste a long hour on Quora.
Looking down upon his petty life
Up in heaven Jesus let out a smile
In his traditional divine style.
He had accepted the harsh reality which was galore
And in his heart, pity for these humans he bore.
Sure all this is a work of fiction,
But the truth is we all are victims of Digital Crucifixion.
