My New Life — Huvy Weinberg

“Hi Mom, I’m home,”

“Just a minute, I’m on my cellphone,”

“Hi Dad, how was your day?”

“I need to take this call and I’ll be with you right away,”

“Hi Sis, what’s happ?”

“Gotta upload my new app.”


I guess I just don’t understand,

Why they think this technology is so grand,

I cannot speak to my family unless it’s with technology.


Face to face is no more, It’s

Facebook or Face Time that’s for sure.


I-pad, I-pod, what is next?

I guess I’ll find out with a text,

Although everyone is at home, I just feel very alone.
