When I think of the future
It’s full of pink neon lights
Dark nights 
And wet city streets
Technology rules
In this bleak dystopic world
Except it’s not the future
It's right now

We live in a world 
Of know it alls
Where everyone lives
What everyone does
Who everyone is
Because everyone 
Shares everything
With anyone
A virtual smorgasbord 
Of personal information

But my life is not 
For sale
I’m not available 
For public consumption
I won’t let you
Eat me alive
