TUESDAY 19th MAY 2009.

Morning brought me shelter
From the storm of its forebear
Where I’d managed to talk to
People at once without voice,
And even screens don’t flicker
As they used to, announcing your
Transmissions. And telephones
Sit idle in their beds as mobiles have
Finally usurped the said, although
They are finger friendlier these days as
Text seems to have replaced speech, and
Even where a semblance of proper type
Remains it’s been reduced to 140 characters
Or less. It would appear communication has
Been over taken by imprints from the skin,
And only crime scene officers grin.

  1. Amen! I really laughed in this one. I enjoyed the social commentary in regards to technology. It gives readers (even me) a double-take on the silliness of human nature at times. :D

    Thanks for sharing!
