I’ve Got the This & That Technology Blues
Interfaces so user friendly.
Babies in strollers navigate smartphones;
Their parents push hard to catch up.
Tap this, swipe that,
Technology couldn’t be easier.
My mother refuses to touch a computer;
She rarely uses her cell phone.
Watch this, record that,
My TV is big and thin.
Streaming movies from many sources;
There aren't enough hours in the day.
“Like” this, follow that,
Social networks keep on growing.
How many people can really be friends,
If I never see them in person.
WiFi this, Bluetooth that,
I find I’m always discoverable.
My favorite feature is “power off,”
A mental break from constant contact.
