Nowadays we have so much social media but do you think it has killed the art of real conversation? On one had it has brought us closer together from afar but on the other many people are alone with their social media friends as their main source of friendship
So much media here today
To Whats App what shall I say
Facebook messenger on my phone
Crazy loud ringing tone
FaceTime, Zello, Yahoo too
It is so easy to get through
But with media messaging I never see
Who is actually speaking to me!
the Amazon Echo recalls a call
so whose this calling are they small or tall!
with a message to the voice it is clear
as if that person was really here!
apart from being able to beam me up today
its all becoming such childs play!
like Star Trek wow!
i really often wonder how
this amazing way to contact each other
without any sense of trouble or bother!
these wonderful wave lengths wi fi blue tooth
With amazing discs stuck on our roof
Media packages to watch tv and movies
it is all becoming more than groovy!
So… in our little boxes alone we live
with so much time and thought to give
plent of contact, it often seems false
when there is no one real with you of course
but a voice a message on media great
you are really not alone, is that your fate
a false sense of being in a lovely friends group
unless you see them its all a dupe!
A million facebook friends I have from afar
But which one will peep round my door open ajar!
If I’m lucky one might pop by for tea
And spend some precious time with me!
So I’ll chatter on Twitter of course it’s grand
Cos you can’t be here to hold my hand!
A sense of friendship does abound
On facebook sure to be found
All these people putting likes upon my post
So which one of you really liked me the most!
I listen with avid ear whilst I eat my toast!
So cheers for internet media which does abound
It’s so clever to have around
But to walk in the park with someone real
It’s a much better deal
Nothing like face to face
A hug a kiss
A warm embrace
A simple chat
About this and that
But media I guess it has its place
And this World forever will embrace
Globalisation has made it small
To contact those around the world no trouble at all
So I’m off to Skype my friend in USA
How’s it over the pond today!
My pal in Spain Bon Dias to you as well
It’s so wonderful I have to tell!
But I’m off out to meet my pal for a drink
Really a better thing to do I think!
Or take a walk in the countryside grand with me
Or walk along on the beautiful beach by the sea ….
