The only thing you can
count on for certain,
is you can’t ever count
on anything for sure.
Everything is changing,
and changing some more.
Better get used to it.
In the digitalized world
of the future, we will all
have internalized remotes.
You’ll be able to change
what’s happening to you
with the push of a button.
If you’re at a wedding,
a funeral or just shopping
for food or clothes, your
wish will be your command
with almost no effort at all.
Your life will be spent viewing
roving channels until you find
a program you enjoy watching.
But you will never know the music of love, 
the divine tenderness,
and sweet caress of your beloved, 
that no machine can ever hope to replace.
