who knows the “Secrets of the Broadband” black box

 The box of possibilities is Pandora’s to me
Advert offered speed, reliability, the world {wide web}
I get sludge, moving through mud
The wires in the back laugh at me
This simple black box 3 inches by 3
Offered freedom but spewed servitude
for the gullible such as me
The blue wire violates my time machine
That has stayed still ever since
No distant lands of ether to discover
My wifi has lost my 412 in the 512
k “work from home” a loser’s paradise
A dreamless dispassion of unemployability.
