    Techno-chronically Speaking



    As ever farther humans race
    Into the community “Cyberspace”
    There’s sure to be a need for names
    To stick on our new “GUI” pains

    For instance, if you Text so much
    Your chin and chest now always touch
    I think “Text-Neck” would nicely do
    To best explain what’s ailing you

    Much like those sweets that rot your teeth
    When Cell phones take, just like a thief
    The joy of face to face away
    That should be called “Blue-Tooth-Decay”

    Though mice you really know they ain’t
    If PC mouses make you faint
    The “I-Hate-PC-Meeses-To-Pieces”
    May be the syndrome your fear releases

    For those who simply fall apart
    Each time their I pad’s slow to start
    Or someone asks to use it please
    “Pad-Paranoia’s” your disease

    And though to turn a Kindle’s page
    With just one finger’s all the rage
    “Dwindling-Spindling-Kindling-Midgets”
    Is what they’ll call your out of work digits

    But Laptop Apps we cannot trust
    May in the end quell all our lust
    For none’s so chaste as to assume
    From “Lap-Apps-Clap” they’ll be immune!

    I love this poem also. With well placed but not too many words, you have captured this sign of our times.
    I emailed this one to myself.

    Lovely, pun-ny, witty and funny! Captured today's new ideas of community very well with humor - because we all need to be able to laugh at ourselves sometimes.

    Hi, cj, This is a very funny piece with many witticisms, and I am sure you have coined some new phrases. Definitely tweetable, and soon to be in every wiktionary worth its pixels.
