How we are seemingly become so dependent on technology, exercise that care as its threat of control is in the air.

The Silent Master

Have the use of the technology made our lives any easier
Can we say that it is not now the servant but the master?
Because it has that ability to move things along a bit faster
But in the process this may sometime later spell disaster

There are people so set in ways that themselves never try to update
So when the workplace use technology, the find themselves in a sorry state
Those years of being dormant and stagnant, let then become caught in the down stream
As technology began to multiply and out life’s river with it got teem

Now too almost every room in the house will be decorated with a computer
Access by cell phones, lap-tops and other devices that are Oh so miniature
Getting caught in the fascination, even addiction always holding the attention
To that point where we get remiss in our contact with another person?

At those finger tips there is that privy to a host of such information
Even professional have to be prepared for a barrage of questions
Now even the sick can access to the intricacies of their medication
Though good, but some now want to have that influence in the prescription

But what impact this have on the future, the off spring yes those children
Yes it good to prepare them, getting the acquainted with the system
However monitor their times, and as responsible parents be wise
Find some time so that you both can fit in some form of exercise

It was amusing to see on day this advertisement on the T.V
This youngster in games clothes candidate for basket ball, height about six feet three
But my laughter that night I found it so difficult to contain
When he bounced the ball once, then told the other guy to let them go play a video game

Even though I am miles away from home, my time is much happier
As I can keep in contact and even seem some of my family members
So in our usage and the self control, and even though on it we are dependent
Hence that impact on us well determines who is the master or servant.


Access, Artraction, Dependence, Master, Speed

One everything is said, silence prevails... leastwise, perhaps it should.
