These days we have so much at our hands.
We even have devices that make all of our plans.
We live in a world of electronic coffee pots,
video chatting doodaas and face calling what nots.
On the computer, information at your fingertips,
paying your bills and giving weight loss tips.
But what happens when the technology doesn’t play nice?
Your old friend ‘the freezer’ could just as easily make ice.
When the computer fails, cutting you from the rest of us,
and you actually have to go to the station to book a train or bus,
remember there was a time before social media,
when libraries held more than the wikipedia.
When the intel powered lap top is smashed on the floor,
and the smart phone has been launched out of the door,
when none of the devices talk to you in the kitchen,
when an urgent message is needed – you can always send a pigeon.
