12 o'clock 12 o'clock 12 o'clock

12 o'clock... 12 o'clock... 12 o'clock! How does one set the damn clock Had to put a sheet on my new clock radio To get the damn flashing to stop Thought I was smart, quite intelligent But technology has me all bamboozled Tried reading the manual that comes with the unit To comprehend, from my brain came refusal My smart ass ten year old nephew came by "Not a problem dear uncle, I'll fix it" A minute and a half later, the damn flashing stopped Felt dorkish and kind of a twit My fervent prayer which I offer without malice That technology buries this young geek In a deluge of bits and bytes and firewalls Till no longer he can get a night's sleep! © Jack Ellison 2012

    I HATE the new world technology. I could not even get the old ways! YOu should have seen hubbie and me on Friday figuring out damn wifi and trying to remove a virus from our computer. Talk about the blind leading the blind. good grief. COOL poem too.

    Thought I might strike a chord with this one! LOL Had to learn quickly because of what I did for a living BUT I still remember when life was so much slower and simpler!!! Hugs and happy thoughts, Jack

    Fun write... and so true... Not only do clocks drive me crazy... I sometimes hit a wrong key on the computer and must reboot it or wait till my hubby comes home... so I can write. I tried to put poems in a folder and then lost the poems and the folder...Panic... Panic... Panic... He fixed it in 2 minutes flat!
