 Mobile Mania

Wherever you wander, whatever the day,

I’m afraid Mobile Mania’s now here to stay.

A nation of zombies with phones to their ears,

Speaking to others while everyone hears.

I don’t want to know who you slept with last night,

Spent a night in the nick? No doubt serves you right.

And if you are driving you’re really a curse,

You’ll end up giving someone a ride in a hearse.

I know you are shopping for bargains galore,

But why phone your partner saying “Shall I buy more?”

I have taken a photo that just makes me shout,

It is mobile mania, of that there’s no doubt.

My daughter, her husband and my grandson too,

Are tapping on mobiles, they’ve nought else to do.

My love Affair with computers

The thought of computers makes me frown,

Whatever they do they let me down.

Windows downloads make me sick,

They’re really just a nasty trick.

Every time an update starts,

My blood pressure soars above the charts.

Last time this happened my emails went

And what a lot of time I spent

Endeavouring to get them back

Microsoft just don’t care jack.

On the home keys I always type

And when I look I’ve typed pure tripe.

The fault of the keyboard, I’ve no doubt,

Even so it makes me shout.

Online forms are just a breeze

But when it says finish there’s a bloody freeze.

And so I have to start again,

It really is a downright pain.

I search in vain for bus times and traffic,

And end up with something pornographic.

I don’t feel well health websites I’m trying.

I must say goodbye, it tells me I’m dying.
