James Michael

Perpetual Droop

You walk along the city streets.

Head bowed before your false god.

Crosswalk up ahead, watch out!

You trip and fall over a pothole.

Splat, snap you just broke your arm.

You stupid fool!

Your beloved phone gets run over.

You cry as if you've lost your best friend.

What are you gonna do now silly boy?

Momma will buy you a new one, right?

At least you've got your sacred tablet.

Head down you go playing that game.

Arm in severe pain.

Another crosswalk, oh no!

You walk out against the flow.

This time a car hits your sorry ass.

Pow, crack you're dead at last.

What are you gonna do now silly boy?

Momma ain't gonna buy you a new toy.

In Hell!!

      Well something's going to go down. Technology is a prime target.

      Always a pleasure to read your twisted comments pal!

        Lol Well you went and wrote about most people my age! They live their lives through their phones. Missing out on life and not being present "in the moment". Loved the ending, brother James!

                          So true, there are so many out there just looking down at the devices and not caring where they are going.
