I am so far behind in my daily prompts. I will be playing catch-up as I have time. Bear with me. ^_^
Science fiction writers knew the way the world was going.
The smartphones, social media, satellite numbers growing.
They knew how much the world would change, how we’d stay copacetic.
How we’d rely on modern things, our new computer esthetic.
Some were worried for us, too, thought we’d be under scrutiny
by “Big Brother,” or, perhaps, destroy the world with mutiny.
All the same the thoughts and dreams these authors passed to others
were oft invented just because inventors had their druthers
and they could see the future, too, like the stories they’d envisioned
and so invented technologies because these makers listened.
So the question is, had writers stuck to sad, traditional friction,
would the world have changed the way it has without science fiction?
