Gods or Monsters

Would it not be nice if in the near future
there's knowledge we could assimilate
by connecting to a central intelligence
in an instant we could accumulate

Would this I wonder void our schools?
or the wonder years spent in education
In other pursuits we could spend our time
and only learn when it merits the occasion?

Would it indeed then become "child’s Play"
to operate any complex machinery?
branches of science that took years to learn
would perhaps even become elementary?

Would we then behave like gods
or unruly tyrants become
The power acquired, perhaps raise desires
and to the chaos we eventually succumb?

The End
