Not Human, Technically

Not Human, Technically

I don’t laugh anymore, I LOL,
And I check online media, a lot.
One misunderstanding I must dispel:
That my phone is smart, because I am not.
I need sunblock due to my monitor,
And I have friends that I have never met.
I rarely touch anyone, anymore,
And thought I might get a digital pet.
I converse with friends through a camera,
And take photos with my digital phone,
I type text to chat, and etcetera;
It’s an episode of the Twilight Zone!
To gain more speed and convenience, are we
Becoming digital humanity?

It is a shame family don't keep in touch by phone anymore I miss it so much. If I don't get on facebook I don't know what is going on in my kids lives. Wish we could go back to writing and telephone calls.
