The Independent

by juliecround

Should we dismiss the death of print as progress, man’s development

Or should we care that language moves aside to let the picture rule.

One paper less, is this the start of the long road to reading’s end

Will words mean less, images more and moving pictures most of all?

Will our brains change, once more adapt, so humans will no longer speak

But poke and point and finger-press and sit bedazzled by our screens?

No more, in school, will books abound, instead, on separate device

an individual learns alone, each thought unspoken, no words found.
