Allowing Computer Use to Take Over Our Lives

Allowing Computer Use to Take Over Our Lives

By Elton Camp

The online world can be a fascinating place
But to let it control our life is sure a disgrace

Look at the amount of time that anyone spends
With the virtual world instead of family & friends

Also, it is quite foolish and dangerously unwise 
To let it prevent us from getting needed exercise

If online all day and very late into the night
Our appearance and weight become a fright

Lack of sleep can cause disease, including cancer
Enough food, sleep and exercise can be the answer

We can greatly harm ourselves and those around us
If with an electronic unreality too often surrounds us

If caught in this trap, we need to bring it to an end
And to limit the time that being online we spend
