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.
