The future is always changing
And I'm sure the day will come
When they send a newborn baby home
With a bar code on its tum.
The date of manufacture
And the life expectancy
Will also be imprinted there
For anyone to see.
All relevant information,
From illness to school degrees,
Will be added on as time goes by
To be accessed with great ease.
And as the item ages
And can't cope for itself
They'll double-check the 'use-by' date
And take it off the shelf.
