My Monday Metrical Musings #66

a boy and a girl sitting back to back using their smartphones

Devices Divisors

Make no mistake
It’s impossible to refute
Tech and devices
Are turning us mute

To each other’s feelings
To simple straight talking
Instead, we hide behind
Our memes and endless
Texting

Make no mistake
Parents here there everywhere
Are losing this bitter battle
As kids no longer care

Only fighting tooth and nail
To get extra screen time
Leading us to mini turf wars
Leaving us in tears and
Grime

Make no mistake
It’s impossible to deny
Devices are divisors
To disconnect needs more than
Try

One thought on “My Monday Metrical Musings #66

  1. Very insightful. Electronic geniuses. Interpersonally challenged, sometimes isolated.

    Connections primarily via electrons seems nurture becoming trapped in our own biases and tends to bring the worst out in us. .
