PLANET OF THE APPS by Tom O’Brien
Your smartphone speaks to you;
‘Hey, why not download our cool new App?’
Then up pops a dialogue box
With text that looks like an escapee from MySpace
Welcome to Appworld.
Steve Jobs is to blame really;
He was the first to realise
That since smartphones
Were actually small computers
They could also run App programs
And so the Apple App store was born
Now there are fucking Apps everywhere
For every fucking thing
A world awash with the
Smartphone and Tablet App
A couple of million at the last count
And most of them are fucking crap.
If there is an App graveyard
Somewhere out there in the digital sky
The majority of those Apps will be deader than the dodo
Long before you and I.
