Blessing and a Curse
It’s amazing what communication has become
We can talk instantly across thousands of miles; some
things are unbelievable to me, and give me pause
They confuse me, it's not simple like it was
I’m constantly amazed by new technology
I see something incredible, and ask myself, “How can this be?”
I have a hard time believing how much things have changed
My reality had been altered and rearranged
I try to explain to my young nephew how different things were,
but I can see he doesn’t follow; it’s both a blessing and a curse
On one hand, technology has made our lives easy
On the other, it’s made human interaction for you and me,
almost a forgotten art; with face to face contact a dying breed
Anonymous, impersonal contact must now fill the need
for information, for keeping up with what’s going on around,
an electronic best friend; the very thought makes me frown
I never thought that time would pass me by,
but I guess things constantly change, I see them and sigh
It’s now a light speed world and it’ll run you over
if you don’t just go with it; no place to duck and cover,
no protection from the information age
See the electronic future as it does wage
a war with the past, and all the old ways
Technology now dictates the way we think and play
