I shorten your life.
Like a mayfly, you live for just one day.
Sometimes you give up the fight early.
I get frustrated at you for not trying harder, for not battling on.
Watch you don’t consume things that are bad for your health. GPS. Facebook updates. Videos. Downloads.
You’ll only shorten your life expectancy.
Stick to what you know is good for you. Text messages. Short phone calls. Browsing news sites.
And you’ll do well, live long, be strong. Keep your colour.
So fight on through to the end of the day, to the cool, welcoming embrace of night, to be plugged in to the great electric spirit in the sky, and to be reborn.
