There are so many things you can now control with your phone!

A Smart Home


When I saw the advert

I knew it was for me

When it came back on

I had to study the TV.


Do I have a Smart phone?

Oh, yes, I surely do,

Look at all the things with it

I can now just do.


I can turn the lights on

Or I can turn them off,

Any thieves that were around?

I can surely scoff.


I can check the temperature,

Turn on or off my heat,

The blinds can be up or down

When I want to take my seat.


I can put the dinner in the oven

Set it up before I go,

Then decide when to let it cook

Once arriving time I know.


Same thing with the washing,

Once it’s put in the machine,

Just a little tiny swipe

Hey Presto, it’s now clean.


I want to watch the TV

But I’m caught up in a jam

Doesn’t matter, not one bit,

In control of it I am.


Once I’m getting very near

Even if it’s dark

The garage doors will open

And the sensors help me park.


And finally the door lock --

I don’t even need my key;

My Smart home will just let me in

For it knows it’s me.


I only have one query,

One thing that worries me;

What if I forget to charge it

And I’m left with no battery?


Who will then be in control,

Will the house hold me to blame?

I think I’ll go on as I am

And let things remain the same.

I use my phone as a phone, and to send texts. I'll even use it to connect to the internet. But that's as far as it gets. There are all these other symbols to do this and to do that but I just leave them alone!! Thanks for reading, Mike!
