Modern Family Life

Modern Family Life

By Elton Camp

Families sat and talked in days of yore
But a great many don’t do that anymore

Oh, they may be present in the same room
Flickering screens lighting up the gloom

Some on the television set so intent
Others on laptops their time is spent

Thumbs on keyboards will play
As text message are sent away

And status on Facebook updated
Others’ inane posts eagerly awaited

If the Internet signal should die,
Family talk they still wouldn’t try

Rather, this is what they will do
“Restart the router” is the hew
