There's Nothing New

There's nothing new for children.
The adults have done it all.
And now they've left for planet Mars
when all you do is crawl.

They raised you with their Google
and taught you of their hive.
They put you on their Facebook
and told you you were live.

They'll send for you at end of days
when you look to the skies.
That's why they left you Google Earth
and praying no one dies.

You'll call them on your iphone
when seas begin to rise.
You'll have to wait for voicemail
to leave your little cries.

You'll want to build a rocketship
to follow them to Mars.
And hope there's one recyclable
from thier abandoned cars.

Then when you've reached your newest home.
Their androids there to greet you.
They'll welcome home their little ones
and then you'll have to start new.

    gosh this is a sad one. I am a teacher and have started to hate what I am doing because my ESL students are all so addicted to their cell phones. What a strange new world we live in.

    I agree Andrea. We are both old school. I hate seeing our kids so disconnected by technology. It is a new world, but to change to keep up- no thanks. LOL
