Magic techno on the roll.
Usurping much of human activity,
making man and woman more sedentary.
All, fingers need do, is touch here or touch there
and channels start shifting and switching places
or drones start going places and doing things.
Remote control! In the hands of Boko Haram
turns up to be such devilish harm,
turning honest lads and lasses lethal.
Making them explode in busy market squares,
in shopping malls. On trains, planes
and buses, causing huge deaths, and debts,
making people flee into the terror of fleas.
