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.
