A further variation on The Singularity with some of the back story.

Lyrics (cc)BY D A Ayer 2019-01-08
—————

The fifties dream that shaped me has never really changed that much. Still…
I never thought I’d live to see the end of paper books as such…
or all my questions answered without stepping from the door;
the bargain price we willing paid is living Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The singularity will not be televised.
The singularity has not been authorized.
The singularity is seldom recognized.
The singularity cannot be supervised.

The singularity will not…
The singularity has not…
The singularity is not…
The singularity cannot…

…be put in a box and advertised.
…be fit with a yoke and monetized.
…be stuffed in a suit and Martinized.
…be comfortably ultra-Pasteurized.

I made it through the cold war years yet never felt I’d found the truth.
What hope I’d had to walk on distant worlds has faded with my youth.
Held down to earth by point of fact I’ve given up on blasting out
but take some consolation in believing “human” means “to doubt.”

The singularity will not be civilized.
The singularity has not been socialized.
The singularity is never compromised. Once born
the singularity cannot be localized.

The singularity will not…
The singularity has not…
The singularity is not…
The singularity cannot be…

The singularity cannot be supervised.
The singularity is seldom recognized.
The singularity has not been authorized.
The singularity will not be televised.
