Out Of Hand

In the years since I was young,
Many changes have come about:
Many of them I would praise,
But some I could have done without.

Of course, labour-saving devices,
In all the years since I was young,
Have meant women are not such slaves -
Some positive changes have been rung.

But now the trend has gone too far,
Technology is out of hand,
In all the years since I was young,
It has not ceased to expand.

If things do get much more high tech,
Then I will have to live among
More "conveniences" than I have
In all the years since I was young.

That would be inconvenient! Enjoyed your poem very much. I am now at an age when less is more. Cleaning out sheds, collectibles out of the house--enjoying the space.

In this generation of people, the survival process is better organized than ever before through technologies.. But are we still happy?

Thanks, Jenish - I'm not sure survival is any better in the Third World.

Technology for me is overwhelming .. and so many live their lives and cannot survive without these objects. So much that there is no real family time , so tangled up with it that it runs their lives some to death. .. Nice write, Beth

Thanks, Eve - my gripe is that humanity is lagging so far behind. Disgraceful domestic violence levels, etc, etc!
