What Happened?

August 5, 2012
Everywhere you look
There’s technology
It consumes society
Cell phone by cell phone
Tablet by tablet

Everywhere you look
There’s immorality
Beckoning the world
Magazine by magazine
Celebrity by celebrity

What happened?
There was never this much
In the world before
Now there is
And we’re letting it

Take us over
Person by person

Really true. I'm glad someone cares that technology is taking over our lives and blinding us from the things that really matter in life. Thank you for writing this :) The rhyming is great too.

  I guess there's three of us :)  Everybody loves technology and the next new thing; nobody ever looks back at what we've lost.  It's sad.  As long as we have language, though, we can remember.

It's not bad at all!  I've thought about stuff like that from time to time. It's nice to know I'm not the only one.
