Don't Give Yourself Away

Don't give yourself away
To the mother of all machines
And the automatic earth.

On a planet of play things
Don't leave the things that are real behind.
On the automatic earth.

Surrender,
But don't give yourself away
To the automatic earth.


Day 5. Based on a NaPoWriMo prompt to mash up other works into a vilanelle. I did not quite get the vilannele. But all the lines are directquotes are near adaptations from:
1. Surrender by Cheap Trick
2. The Body Electric by Rush
3. The Boy in the Bubble by Paul Simon
4. Toys in the Attic by Aerosmith.
