PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE
What did we do before technology?
when things were simple yesterday
children would play outside
look for fun in their special way.

Adults would communicate
or listen to the radio at night
televisions were not invented
not even in someone's sight.

People would sit playing cards
or games for everyone
no computer in the background
just everyday normal fun.

The days of writing letters
were the fashion of the day
people would be creative
having much to say.

Now we have email
or sending someone a text
no more writing paper
old fashioned in context.

Kids all around a game station
no creativity needed now
brains fried , becoming a recluse
no sweating from their brow.

Adults with laptops on their knee
all around them nothing exists
shutting themselves out from reality
just typing from clenched fists.

No one speaking the room is silent
each person amidst their own dimension
electricity generated in mass amounts
causing masses of tension.

Gone are the days when families play
or talk at the dinner table
everyone rushing to eat fast foods
the irony of a family that's stable!

Technology has killed old fashioned ways
nothing left except micro chips
dumb, blind humans exisiting today
no talking or moving lips.

Technology is a great thing these days, its amazing just what it can do, but, do you think it has killed some  social skills we used to have? like family time, communication to each other, getting out?
before computers took over our lives, people made their own entertainment, and I remember some of the things we did as kids, which involved getting out...

Do you think technology has killed  some of our social skills?
