The other day I was sat waiting for an appointment when it struck me that everyone – and I do mean everyone – who was in the waiting room was either on their phone or iPad tapping away to their hearts content.
In twenty years time will we have a generation who will physically be unable to lift their heads up?
Anyway as a result I wrote the following.
I sat and watched as people sat
On their iPhone totally absorbed
Oblivious to their surroundings
Interruption would be abhorred
For all the world they were alone
Their life controlled by the screen
Of an electronic space machine
They did not speak or observe
It looked and was quite absurd
That the life that was around them
Was swiftly passing by
Until just like their iPhone power
The screen will power down –
Go blank and die
