Who cares!

In the halcyon days of my childhood

When there were no worries

and no cares

I sat like a royal

in front of the television

watching my favourite cartoon show

at which was my designated

time of the day

Life was easy,

life was wonderful

There were no turf wars

for the best seat

nor for the control of remote

But these days it is even worse

we all sit in different rooms

immersed in our gadgets

no fights, no conversations

no opinions exchanged

Except for online on social media

with rank outsiders

who hardly care!

      1. we now have a device that can detect drivers using their mobiles and the photos are devastating … driver is so totally absorbed texting that the passenger is steering … what about speed, braking, etc … many more are dying on roads now because of the blighters!

      2. for me it’s a tool to use … although friends know I go to bed and rise early they were phoning too late … so switch it off at 8pm πŸ™‚
        Couldn’t do that with the landlines πŸ˜‰

  1. Days gone by…times have definitely changed. I believe at times technology can be great, but it needs to have boundaries to remember the importance of spend quality time doing things in nature, and with friends and family. πŸ€—β€οΈ

  2. I DO! I CARE!

    Now that I got that out of the way…

    You know, I find it sad that things that were meant to help us communicate and connect help us to shut up and disconnect. It’s a sad world.
