How quickly time leaves us in this modern age;
The passing of days like the blink of an eye,
Yet this generation seldom considers
How quickly time passes or why.
Let me tell you what I have heard--
These horrors that I have seen!
Rarely a person who passes me by
Is not glued to a screen!
Or is not stuck to some device,
Like Bluetooth microphones,
Or tablets and Ipads
Or Skype or Google Chrome!
What happened to the sunny world
Where kids could run and play,
Instead of sitting in the house
To watch cartoons all day?
Perhaps this is only "progress",
Perhaps I've lived beyond my age,
But I do pity this sci-fi world
That seldom turns a page.
