We don’t want to be alone…
But our deepest relationship is with our phone
Like a dog with a bone, checking the tone.
We swipe and we flick,, we tick and we post,
Poking, retweeting, who likes us the most?
We turn on the roast, we like and give stars,
But end of the day, do we know who we are?
This ain’t how it could be,
It’s wrong, do you see?
The tail wags the dog
Let’s go the whole hog,
Fit implants which log
If we’ve done all our steps, met targets, made friends
Checks all our posts, saves pressing send,
When we’re just feeling lost, confused and lonely
Still got connection, sometimes it’s the only
Thing we have got, lost our marbles, our minds,
Rushing and dashing, eyes gone all blurred,
Till we don’t see them in front of us, rest of the herd
Which bustles and shoves up steps and down streets,
We don’t need nobody, don’t need to meet…
Don’t change your provider, provide real contacts
Dem modem need mo dem feelings we lacks.
Switch on, plug in, log on and zone out,
Wise up, calm down, push through and don’t doubt
We are in this together, all in the same boat
On the same bus, but words still stick in our throat
By sticking together, might be some way out,
Hold someone else up, let them climb on your back,
Surprising yourself with strength you don’t lack
Forget watching your followers, it’s love we should track.
So let’s swipe right to turn off,
Don’t lose our connection
Look around ourselves, without the distraction,
Approaching each day with a clean intention –
Look in the eyes, share some feeling, some tension,
Emojis and QWERTY?
Love is the key!
Download your emotions and learn to be free
No more FOMO, no need to be bitter
