Internet: Firewalls 2.0

Apr 17 2020 Published by under Internet Poems

I want the world’s most perfect OS,
a stable one that has no vulnerabilities.
the human system is working its way there,
our perfect righteousness already installed
but our sin continuously competing
for computing cycles.
yet we have a good designer
continuously patching and patching and patching
until one day (trumpets.wav) it is made stable
with a final great push,
no more attacks can be levied,
the viruses are all defeated,
and then we can go further up and further in,
with no more worries about firewalls

a new person who operates differently,
through fear and trembling
away from the sword of fire
toward the garden city
transforming
bit by bit
into what viruses cannot touch

calling us to attention 
on what we want out of a god,
the god of our own era,
insulting and berating us
for the lols
