Slave to Technology

By John Ross Harvey

There are things I do today
That I thought were quite stupid a few years ago
Using a cell phone while shopping
Your wife gives you a list
The store doesn’t have an item or two
So you call her on the cell phone.
Simple really
“What do you want? They don’t have Spaghetti sauce.”
But a few years ago
I would not use a cell phone
And I would laugh at people
Standing in the chips aisle
“You want Ruffles or Doritos?”
I’d think that was pretty lazy
What kind of loser would ask what to buy?
I’ve since become one of those said losers
Isn’t technology great?
Conveniently destroying our brain cells
So we need to use it more.
