Control Technology - Poem by Vera Sidhwa
Technology has entered our lives.
Understanding it is our job.
We think we're surrounded by a new beauty,
Of satellites and such.
Our cell phones with apps
And our gleaming laptops
What will man be left to do
Except inside a whirl of technology? '
I think we need to understand
That God's work we should demand
That humankind should be humble
In tinkering with tech.
I told my friend
How this could be
And she heard me through
Through satellite be.
I called my mother across the States
And there her hologram stood in my face
As if she was right here in my space
Then I shut my cell phone off and she was gone.
And so I won't have to fly to her
Three-thousand miles across the States.
I don't know what to do now
With my time and my life in this 'human' race.
