This is a poem about the dangers of digital implants. For animals, especially for dogs, it is common practice to implant RFID (Radion Frequency Identificatio) chips, in order to easily identify them when getting lost. Humans use implants in the size of rice grains for an “easy” way to open car-, house or officedoors, for e-banking, to access the mobile or to provide medical data in case of emergency. These chips are not too expensive and can even be implemented in a piercing-studio. But do we really want a future like that?
Roses are red,
implants are small,
we don’t know whether they’re good at all.
What does the future hold,
Are we just being controlled?
Is surveillance the only goal?
Are we selling our soul?
Only the future will tell,
Sensitize for the danger of human digital implants.
