Caught in technology’s clutch
When do we pull the switch?
The user has become the product
Losing sight of our conduct
Oh Humans, Where does this leave us?
Or are we making too much fuss?
Obsessed with the mobile phone,
Froze me like I was stone.
A prey caught in the fangs,
Shouted in guilt pangs.
What a fool I’d been!
Glued to a screen,
Could’ve travelled instead and seen
Locked in the webbed cell of the sensory bots
I call it smart, as I get sucked & tombed
In an ethereal world with development & growth
I constantly discover myself blind, mute & lost.
What did we ever do
before the mobile phone?
We were more human
and not in our own zone.
Our attention was never distracted
by a ring or a text we were fully aware
of our surroundings
from one place to the next.
were never interrupted
what modern technology
has forever corrupted.
You need to breath,
you need to see the sky
But you can’t because you are caught
in other people’s lies.
Call me now, tap to tag,
like me please, share with spies.
You have no idea
how beautiful it once was
With two tins and some string,
call out from the street,
Pictures with a Polaroid,
no moment for a pause.
Bring on back the good old days,
the simple times we had,
Only happy days filled with fun,
real people in the sun,
a kiss was felt right on the skin,
and mouths were real with words of love.
Strangled by technology,
As we allowed it to consume us fully
Why blame the advancement
as a whole ?
No one forced us
to lose control !
The digital screen is like black hole
It sucks me in gradually
I am so stick to it
It feels itchy when i am out of it.
The creator becomes the prey
much to all our dismay
All it took
Was entanglement into the web of
The green eyed monster
And now the spider of social media
Has us all shook
The octopus of technology,
rules my psychology
by the sting
of social media.
Trapped in the web of virtuality,
break free soon,
else you will miss the reality!
