21st Century - Poem by Sandra Feldman

We speak to Robots on the phone,
And our Computers are our home,
We really think we're not alone,
But all of this lacks Human tone,
As our poor lives turn into stone.

    Oh, so very true! Point made and hopefully taken by the many who come to visit,
    yet they are constantly on their phones, texting, etc. No interaction anymore.
    This ays it all.....thank you!

    That's why I get up and walk the dog every once in a while. Your poem delivered the message with simplicity and skill. (Report) Reply

    How true! I refuse to speak to phone robots. Let them call other robots instead. (Report) Reply

    This is indeed an acerbic commentary on the present age and our life. All kinds of gadgets are at our service without human touch As our poor lives turn into stone. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    In 5 lines you have spoken volumes about the world we have created. A world shared with increasingly intrusive machines, so much so there are scientists working in Artificial Intelligence who think we are so close - it's time to draw up a statements of the Rights of Thinking Machines! First
    Right - the absolute right of a thinking entity to be left alone and undisturbed if (It) desires solitude.

    You have beautifully and succinctly captured what its like to be living in the 21 century, It amazes me when I see people, and they just play on their smart phones talking to people at a distance while human beings stand right in front of them, I do it to, but not to the extreme of every minute living within the virtual world. Great work Sandra, its definitely a poem that makes you think. I like those (Report) Reply
