At My Tech And Call - Poem by Edward Iacona

AT MY TECH AND CALL
Ed Iacona

Modern technology's a wonder
Just amazing this I know
If I get lost there's my GPS
That will tell me where to go.

If I am bored at home alone
And want to have some fun,
I can play against Nintendo Wii
Although I have never won.

For my mathematical prowess
I realize there's no flattery.
But, thanks to my calculator
I'm as good as a fresh battery

My cherished old film camera
Is no longer photographically hip.
Instead it is all about pixels
Stored on a memory chip.

No need to know 'bout shutter speeds
And 'F' stops as in back in the day.
No need to know my elbow
From my ASA

I wonder what auld Scottish
Poet Robert Burns would say
Were he around to take a look
At this our modern day?

O wad some power
The giftie will sink us.
To own devices that
Can out think us.

    Technology is apparently here to stay. We can only reminisce about
    the times when things weren't so advanced. Still we must go back to
    the good old days sometimes. Enjoyed your write. (Report) Reply
