Technology

Invincible Mimes

 

 

.............

 

Filed away in poem and prose,

So many things that no one knows,

The poetess and poet's rhyme,

Changing and turning the hands of time,

If our friend Thoreau had ever known,

He might have not shared his very own.

Mobile

“Ring and Ring”, your ring tones go on…
A mobile has become a vehicle with a horn!

We are extremely dependent on mobiles today..
Without a mobile we have lost our way!

News now is on the latest mobile model coming,
Everyone is excited, calculating the mobile value and summing,

Is life gone to the gadget room?
Are we going to take these gadgets to our tomb!

When are we going to live simple?
When are we going to smile free with or without a dimple?

A simple life lived more with nature speaks,
You can face all challenges and reach successful peaks!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Mobile the in thing!

Technology absorbs a lot of our time, there by taking away, the joy of true living!

Changes that crawl like the serpent

The future doesn't hit you all at once, it comes on slowly,
dulling your awareness of the technological advances,
until the day you look back on the years past and realize how much has changed,
either in amazement or fear.

Perception of the generations and how they differ

To the old, technology is evil; a creation of the devil and the sign of the end;
to the young, its just a way of life; just another convenience.

Progress vs. Humanity

You read this now
Perhaps seeking glimpses of humanity
Absorbed through curved black lines on white screen

Ever deeper and more meaningful
the status updates
the likes and the pokes
The spiraling social media
replaces our interactions
Our thought patterns, even
Ever think in 3rd person?

where are Adam and Eve
Where is our garden?
smelling, feeling, tasting

To touch the earth
and others
engulfed by senses
Ruled by emotion
And physical need

As time elapsed
Progress was made
In technology
Matched by an equal decline
In humanity
And mindfulness

AT MY TECH AND CALL

AT MY TECH AND CALL
Edward Iacona

Modern technology's a wonder
Just amazing, this I know.
If I get lost there's my GPS
That will tell me where to go.

If I am bored at home alone
And want to have some fun,
I can play against Nintendo Wii
Although I have never won.

For my mathematical prowess
I realize there's no flattery.
But, thanks to my calculator
I'm as good as a fresh battery

My cherished old film camera
Is no longer photographically hip.
Instead it is all about pixels
Stored on a memory chip.

No need to know 'bout shutter speeds
And "F" stops as in back in the day.
No need to know my elbow
From my ASA

I wonder what auld Scottish
Poet Robert Burns would say
Were he around to take a look
At this our modern day?

”O wad some power
The giftie will sink us.
To own devices that
Can out think us.”

INTEXTICATED

Intoxicated, texting, our friendship has ended.  Why did I not love her unconditionally? Why did I allow the bottle to control my push button words? Amazing how technology is alleged to be for the better, yet it destroys so much so quickly.  Too late to repair, I live with the despair. Only myself to blame. Friends should never let friends drink and text.

NEWNESS FROM THE DUST

Figuring out the past

Knowing what ails us

Resolving issues

From what we learned

And finding

Newness from the dust.

Renewed effort

To remold the past

With better ideas

In a better cast.

Making life easier

With convenience of new

Laughing at the past

And what we would do

Changing simple

To complicated

Is the new better

Or over rated?
