Cyber Christmas.

Klaus Hnilica (KH), who created
“Carl & Gerlinde”
regularly writes IF Blog articles.

I received special greetings from him while staying in the Caribbean.

Then I asked him if I may publish his poem.

And Klaus said yes.

Here comes (Translated by EG)!


Our first Cyber Christmas ?!?

Moritz, Stella and Agathe,
even Granny says: I’ll wait,
until Sonja shows us all:
the tree is beamed against our wall
as hologram in 3-D space
where real trees sat in former days,
it even has some sparklers on,
which means that Granny’s fears are gone!
It was our Grandpa’s strange desire
that we wear cyber glasses with frames of wire,
But Simon put no glasses on:
he navigates the Christ-Child drone,
which – and Granny wins the bet –
is naturally a little late.
That means we all will see and hear
with “real augmented“ coming near,
how “virtual“ is now rather old
and our dinner gets quite cold.
The cyber angels are not able
to blow some warmth towards the table.
When finally we hear next door
“hallelujah”, we yearn for more.
For Simon this is no big deal
his smartphone makes it all quite real!
A drone is doing all the singing
with tyres quite still and rotors swinging.
And when our Grandpa rings the bell
it says: I come from heaven, not from hell,
I bring the presents right from there,
old Santa Claus knows where they were!
The heap grows into quite a tower
a virtual presentation shower,
that makes our Markus yell quite loud,
and Anne falls from her chair of cloud,
when small Agathe squeaks with pleasure
and yells like crazy for good measure,
just as the goose is much enjoyed
by all the guests today employed.
The drone alone remains aloof,
it will land on another roof.

Happy season’s greetings from 

Brigitte, Klaus and all the family!

P.S.
I’d like to thank so much Eveyln (EG) for the translation. What a great work! She has all my adoration.

    Herzlichen Dank,Roland! Das von Dir ausgesuchte Foto ist ja eine hervorragende Ergänzung des absurden Szenarios – und implizit gleich noch eine Art Technologiefolgenabschätzung…
