The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 60 - Poem by Flying Lemming

I went to a gathering today
A few of us managed to find our way
To the home of a good friend of mine
Who’s lifestyle isn’t the usual you’d find
He doesn’t need all the modern contraptions
He’ll just relax with no distractions
No computer and no TV
A stereo is all that I could see
We all just talked, played cards and joked
No need for drink and no one smoked
Some quiet music, barely a hiss
We began to reminisce

The odd thing is when I got home
I left the TV and computer alone
I wrote this poem, had a hot apple drink
And gave myself some time to think
Much modern technology and progress
Makes our eyes work more and our brains work less
