You’ve probably had days like that , too. Technology is wonderful when it works, but a taste of hell when it doesn’t. However, to put things into perspective, this isn’t life threatening stuff.
I wrote a poem on this topic for a writer’s group I belong to. I don’t recall if I’ve shared it here before. It’s rather amateurish perhaps, but one member was glad to see a kindred spirit on display.
If I Were From 1800
If I were from 1800 I’d surely be frightened you know
By so many horseless carriages and how devilishly fast they go!
If I were from 1800 I know I’d be baffled you see
By the boxes with voices and pictures we all know as TV.
If I were from 1800 I think I would be overwhelmed
By radio, lighting and cell phones—from what cause and whose realm?
If I were from 1800 I’d be plainly astonished as well
By the World Wide Web and computers. You’re sure they’re not straight from hell?
If I were from 1800 I’d be circled in whole or in part
By curious magics and wonders whose origins must be Black Art.
If I were from 1800 I’d find me a far quiet nook.
Hand me that thing from the shelf there; thank God for an old fashioned book!
– John Wesley Smith
