The man behind the lens

In the matrix of code and dishonesty,

Sits a man with his eyes on the screen.

Seeing humans looking back at him through a device, never knowing what any of it means.

For the man behind the lens sees us as we stare,

Oblivious to the information we are sharing.

It’s an addiction that’s transcends self- awareness

and replaces it with a simple lack of caring

The man behind the lens is unseen,

Unheard, unconsidered and irrelevant.

Yet his power is greater than all that we know.

As it’s not those around us who are the concern,

It’s the hidden faces behind screens who dictate where we go.
