Technology has passed us by,
But I’ll not sit here and cry.

I write and write and write,
Then I copy, cut and paste.

Then accidently hit the delete key.
Oh, what a tragic waste.

I watch Tina try with clumsy, fumbling thumbs,
Try to “text her bff,” mumbling, “I feel so dumb.”

She huffs, she puffs, here a moan, there a piss:
At long last she cries, “I just can’t do this!”

Yes indeed, the century has turned,
Technology left us far behind, but not unburned!
