Horseless chariot

Computers are today’s version
of the horseless chariot:

they are clunky, erratic, unreliable,
difficult to communicate with,
frustrating, complicated,
crap
that we have been hyped into
making central to our existence.

This seems
familiar:

Didn’t we used to do all right
without these suckers?

Somehow, we’ve been sold
on the future when it’s really the past
