This being does not steal your blood. No, it steals something that could be considered much more precious
This leech he focuses on your time. He takes seconds first, then minutes, then days, for some he takes months, and even years.
Many hardly even notice what they are losing because unlike other leeches.
He does give something back
He gives you satisfaction
Huge heaps of dopamine
He gives you joy and endless content to soak up
And leave you empty
This leech hides his true colors
But people are starting to see
This new addiction
The effects it will have
One day we will all see
The screen was born years ago
Big and bulky at the start.
Now he takes many forms
And is considered smart.
And smart he is because he knows
That to many he is not a choice
But a necessity in this new world.
So a warning I must pass before he finds a way
To seem once again like a harmless little tool that steals our days away.
Be careful how you use him.
Don’t let him take too much of your time
Because as we all know
Time is the one thing you won’t get back.
He is a useful tool.
That part isn’t false.
However he will never be harmless
If you forget that all is lost.
