Big Brother In My Pocket

Big Brother In My Pocket By Rick Rucker The cell phone I carry has the power, To run my company, hour, by hour, Its power is so robust, It leaves my old computer in the dust, Instead of having to phone in, I check the Web remotely, a major win, I check my stocks, and check the news, Listen to tunes, if I get the blues, I can forever monitor my mail, Through daily briefings, I now sail, If a picture is worth a thousand words, I have sent millions of them to fellow nerds, From my office, I am free, Free of my phone, I shall not be, To it, I am always tethered, The fellow that invented it should be tarred and feathered! I long for those days of being alone, Not possible, not with this phone! I think about how I got imprisoned with mirth, It constantly tells where I am on Earth! Like a prisoner’s bracelet, that I wear, To take it off, I would not dare! Yesterday, on a day most sunny, It texted me, it wanted money! It was not a large amount, I dared not to deny it, it knows the info for my bank account, To those that think that tech can’t be bad, I feel as if I have been had! A simple phone, like any other, It has grown into Big Brother!
