Beeps, Buttons and Voice
and post notes and photos about your poem like Funom Makama.
Attention is needed, signified by the tune
far but near like the deception of a full moon.
The device is put to work making its functions tropical
little readings and meters, such intelligence is typical.
Units and measurements coming with each delivery
buttons punched only for commands, made for slavery.
Signals accepted as the screen goes bright
abusing distance as technology shows its might.
Added voices into one conversion one can sow
in a few seconds, connectivity and networking grow.
To all part, its mouth piece stands as the dean
while another snatches voices for linking like a curious teen.
Its extending web is completely innate
making a risk taker even with an option, an ingrate.
Traveling stays real but badly cheats time
body gestures follow up conversation in a mime.
Messaging in a tenth of an hour rather than in two hundred and sixteen
releases the tension to make life less as mean.
A resting nanny, speaking from Nigeria
connects to a newlywed, honeymooning in Algeria
