Remember the days it took days to reach those fellows
And how the days were reduced to hours
Suddenly, an hour became too long...until
You can get them from the distance on the instance
Technology shrunk space and castrated time
But it has also shrunk something of great value
Its genius recreates human features-voices and pictures
It gathers men and flung them like embers from the bellow
Now we talk often but seldom see
Maybe there is no need to see when gadgets can do it all
It has reduced kin's ties to wires and palm affairs
Now it has frozen and muted our voices
Reduced cherished contacts to symbols and smileys
We've stop visiting, soon to stop talking
We will be unseen, deaf and dumb to one another
Smileys and symbols are the sound of our thumb-turned-tongue
Ask why we do not value ourselves again
Human mental alienation at snail's pace
Has turned to physical incarceration
It brings us together from far and wide
But widens the gulf and kills the essence of togetherness
From visit me...to link me...to ring me...NOW! Ping me!
What next will you do to me? Fing me?!
Or ting me? Oh...do not sink me...
But, what will halt humanity from sinking further
The joyous abyss of crass earthly senselessness
OJERINDE, Olatunde A.
I will love to say the poem is self explanatory and our writer Olatunde is of a sad note on how technology has alienated man from each other, we are close only with technology which may ruin us soon. I love this piece.
