Blue Tooth Biting Ears…. - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Welcome to the world of hi-tech
Everyone is in this busy-ness
Centuries back people were scared
To use simple inventions fearing
Health reasons,
but now it has become a fashion
A decade back it was too costly
for a common man to afford
now it’s damn cheap and easily available
once the pride of rich is now biting dust
they left it for poor people now
having seen the curse and disadvantages
of gadgets and techno inventions
enough of blue tooth biting their ears

I still remember when my friend
First saw it in the ear of
Divisional marketing manager
He was in early thirty’s
My friend in shock and wonder
Said so sorry to see this young
Manager uses a hearing aid machine
Without knowing that it was the latest
Hands free blue tooth device
Like a lady wearing with pride to show
Others their latest ear-rings
He too had a nice haircut
To facilitate the visibility to others
Without realizing that people
Will misunderstand it for hearing aid

We laughed uncontrollably knowing
The truth about that device
Hanging on ears with pride
With occasional blink of blue lights
Reminding me even today when
I see carpenter, cobbler, milkman
Wearing it to show others
How busy they are with their business.

    Quite interesting observations. Now all electronic gadgets are within the reach of common man! Earlier what has been the privilege of the upper class has now become necessities for the common man and everyone uses a mobile phone. To a great extent, it is so convenient and useful for all. But over dependence on machines or when their use becomes a fad or mere fashion, it can become equally disastrous and ridiculous! Enjoyed reading the poem Asim! (Report) Reply

    A poem that makes one both laugh and think at the same time.. Technology, or anything for that matter, as long as used for their utility is good.. But when it becomes a kind of 'fashin statement' or 'ornament' of sort, its original value gets lost somewhere.. Thank you for sharing Asim.. A really nice poem... (Report) Reply
