21st Century

We speak to Robots on the phone,
And our Computers are our home,
We really think we're not alone,
But all of this lacks Human tone,
As our poor lives turn into stone.

    You have beautifully and succinctly captured what its like to be living in the 21 century, It amazes me when I see people, and they just play on their smart phones talking to people at a distance while human beings stand right in front of them, I do it to, but not to the extreme of every minute living within the virtual world. Great work Sandra, its definitely a poem that makes you think. I like those (Report) Reply

    Too right Sandra, computers seem to have replaced humans in many instances, and those awful recorded telephone answering systems really annoy me. Well expressed. (Report) Reply
