E-mail has replaced the mail.
Cd’s have replaced tape cassettes
I never got a cd, now can’t get a tape cassette.
Can’t keep up with the new,new, new.
Everyday somethings’s new on the shelf
of society’s intrinsic worth.Paper and pen turned to typewriter.
Typewriter to computer, then lap-top,
Nothing’s basic anymore.
Radio’s were way back when
Then t.v’s, then digital, digital
The world moves too fast for us to
keep up with.
w i z za r d r y, w h i r l w i n d,
scrambling my brain.
Drive through food shops, no more
planting, food made in test tube labs.
Dolly’s been cloned, then Peter and Paul.
No longer any identity to this paper-clip
When God said: LET THERE BE LIGHT
He hadn’t the foresight to
see man would write away
lose his hold on his beautiful fold.
The tap, tap, tap of a dancer’s shoes,
are the tap, tap, tap of a lap top.
We’ve lost our way!
