My Poetry. Technology, Good or Bad?

What did we do before technology?
Things were simple yesterday
children played outside then
And had fun in their own little way.
Adults would communicate
at the dinner table each night
televisions a pipe dream
Kids would play fight.
People would play cards
smoke filled the air
no sight of a PC
Corners looked bare.
The days of writing a letter
has vanished without a trace
people were very creative
spoke face to face.
Now we have email
or sending someone a text
no more writing paper
Old-fashioned in context.
Kids glued to game stations
no creativity in this age
brains fried, becoming a recluse
Constantly in a rage.
Knees bearing laptops
nothing else exists
imprisoned by technology
Typing long boring lists.
No conversation no” how was your day”
all caught in an unreal dimension
electricity meters running at a fast pace
Beyond anyone’s apprehension.
What happened to the days when Families
Played board games or got some fresh air?
Fast foods and the internet
Caused this realistic nightmare.
Technology has killed the old-fashioned ways
nothing left except microchips
tapping away on the pc or phone
Without even moving your lips.

Facebook welcome.
