Technology grows. 
As the day goes.
Though some homes uses the broom.
But mine uses vacuum.

Gone are days of town criers,
Awhile ago, people share flyers.
Now fast and swift.
Can information cross barriers.

Talking of a machine mould,
Compared to a manual mould.
What you do for several days,
Can be done within a day.

Who on earth can lift a car?
Even those on drug, can only try.
For technology as heard your cry.
The jack lifts all, with a care.

Great pleasure,
Has technology brought.
For a room could be so hot,
But technology turns it into a freezing hall.

In medical world, 
You are like ‘sagging’ of the fashion world.
For gone are days. 
When people die of pains.

For days gone by, are for piggy banks.
But right now, we go for online banks.
For they are more safe, 
But yet to be free from crime.

Full of advantages.
But not without disadvantages.
With this truism.
Technology is not left going.

As whole shoyinka rightly said,
In his creative death in the dawn.
‘’That there are wrathful wings.
Of man progression’’.

Requesting a slap from ones clerk.
For him, it’s a corn.
In a lions den.
But for robots, a fish in a dogs front.

Replacing snail-bat things,
With the tortoise-horse things.
So great indeed!
Have you helped.
