I love my algorithms

I love my algorithms

I love my great algorithms

                I no longer have to think!

They tell me everything

                About what to eat or drink.

I love those chirpy adverts

                With new things to buy.

Offering me a range of goods.

                Urging me to try.

They even target all my news

                And tell me how to vote.

Complete with handy slogans

                To memorise and quote.

My life is so much simpler

                With Musk and Gates in charge.

Using all their profits

                Fior a one-way trip to Mars.

Particularly scary when most of it is fake news, propaganda and lies.

I'd like to hear from you...
