Double Etheree – Devolution by Sally Cronin

Man
evolved
when challenged
by life’s extremes,
using primitive
strategies to ensure
survival of the fittest.
Those skills seemed to have disappeared
within our modern society,
and our reliance on technology.
Sometimes I feel like a protagonist
in a farcical soap opera,
written by a manic robot
without the human input
to add the common sense,
fused with emotion,
that will prevent
future man
being
lost

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
