In the sodium lit, neon flicking city, electricity hums.
In homes where data downloads and Netflix streams,
everything’s on tap, content feeds.
No more mysteries, no more myths,
fables are unnecessary. All is explained
by an expert, a pundit or an app.
A glorious storm floods the dark skies,
unnoticed a lightning bolt flies.
A switch is tripped. Darkness.
Emergency lights click on, generators kick in,
faces are blue-screen illuminated.
No-one tells stories any more.
