Children In The Computer Age


A child handles
A computer mouse
Like a true pro
Dragging and dropping.

A computer game
I cannot play
It's child's play
And hard for man.

Even a baby juggles
With an I-phone
Manipulating screens
With loud and happy screams.

A room full of kids
On their own mini-computers
No direct interactions
Not easy to talk to anyone.

Life's no more mechanical
It's electronic nano-world
Hope we'll not lose
The human touch we had.

    Yes, so true! The children today are so tech savvy. They are far advanced than the adults in handling computers and mobile phones. But the more they are glued to the electronic media, the greater is their estrangement from the physical world and its realities! A very good poem! (Report) Reply
