Richard Lloyd Cederberg is right about the stream of ideas, so recently penned.
This one is a direct spinoff and I thank him.

A Harmless Plot


'Tis mighty harmless, selfies are
And so dress-up like, so princess-Star.
Disguise ourselves, pretentious hawks,
A king, a ghoul, or sly Guy Fawkes,
But we warn each other with a shout
Those other dangers all about

And hundred years ago at sea
With raiders all around did we
Tap R R R or S S S at this location
And S O S - S O S - S O S -
just stricken by a hateful nation.

So flex your wrist, make a fist,
Let the dancers sway and twist,
Dit Dah Dit, Di da di, di da di -
Dit dit dit, di di di, di di di -
Dit dit dit, Dah Dah Dah, di di di -

So dread those sounds across the years,
To sum up our most awful fears,
We warn, now rue our own reflections,
And call them traitor who have objections,
We demand and hoard more ammunition.

And once the robot writers have it
They'll spread so wide this coded widget
Ever more its fame abides us,
Cloaks us ... hides us
'Neath richocheted echoes of chattered fuss.

Every word is filed away, for don't we know
That some fine day a trumpet's blow
Will signal all our mirrors show
Our savior fallen deep in love
With what its ears and eyes behove
A selfie of its zettabyte trove.

So raise your arm and make a fist,
And let the dancers bob and twist,
Play it fore and play it backwards
Morph it round the prison yards
Da dit, dit dit dit, dit dah
Da dit, dit dit dit, dit dah
Da dit, dit dit dit, dit dah

Original thoughts. Love that fifth verse. As a brisk campfire; your creative mind is crackling warmly here. Enjoyed. rlc

...appreciate your effort of..."Raise your arm again, make a fist, point your thumb down
and continue saying, I'm a bad boy while I push down on your wrist. Ready? Resist."...
and..."Come on Baby, Let's do the Twist".....
Great spin-poetry. Exquisite sense of humour...Have what she is having....

OK, you have quoted or written about too many different people, places, and things for me to comment about (or to search and read about) that I must limit myself to observing you have a mighty nice rhyme that resonates well around my prison yard
da dit, dit dit dit, dit dah etc.

We have become a self-centered world of 'Selfies' and I think so many miss so much all around them because of this. I prefer to take pics of what I see around me.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 2/5/2015
And I didn't see those typos… I must admit I was having trouble deciphering what you are driving at except perhaps the idea that from a simple binary tapping of Morse code to convey simple messages in time of danger, we now have wide bandwidth to text massive amounts of chatter, but little warning.

Extrapolating what's happening in the future is mind-boggling…

Reviewed by Jeff Mason 2/5/2015
"Guy Fawkes" is the correct name. Also, you may have been looking for "stricken" vs. "striken?" And, you need a space in "eachother." (end of grammar cop mode) ;-)

I love the inter-weaving of the old (morse code) with the new (selfie and zettabyte) - nicely done. -- Jeff Mason
