By Captain-Tightpants, Lawrenceville, GA

They spend their days in Mylar towers
In castles made of laser light
They look down their plastic noses
At the sorry slaves below

They mate in test tubes
Sleep in cryogenic pods
Read HTML script
Breathe monoxide fumes

Staring at you
With electric eyes
Do you feel them
When you're on the screen

Watching you in HD
Storing it on DVD
Upgrading you to LCD
Making you a plasma screen

Every move fascinates
The gods in narcoleptic dreams
Their nightmares make the news
Their fantasies become reality
