We’ve only been technically advanced for a century,
200 hundred years ago we could barely harness electricity,
Not too long ago the fastest way to get from here to there was horse and buggy.
But once we figured out the delicate dance of the technical technique,
Inventors invented and innovators innovated the dreamer’s dream,
And technology came to life and has come and gone at a pace the world has never seen.
Remember the Polaroid print you had to shake,
And then the image would slowly create?
Or…you could take your 24 shot, 35mm film, to Walgreens and wait.
(For two to three days…)
But now…why count shots, why wait?
Your digital cam can hold as many photos as your media card will take,
Now…who needs a photo album, just upload them to a Kodak digital frame.
Nowadays, there’s a computer in almost every house,
Hard to believe that just about every house has a mouse,
And phones have gone from on the wall to somewhere on the couch.
We’ve come a long way since the printing press,
No more typewriters we just WORD process…
With no need to fear your correctness…cause we all have spellcheck!
What will come of our newspapers, magazines and books,
Now that we’ve invented iPads, Kindles and Nooks,
Maybe the same thing Google did to 411 and the phonebook?
(Unfortunately, they’ll probably take the path that Encyclopedia Britannica took)
Where’s your road atlas?
You still Mapquest?
Stop that…get a GPS!
Curses upon you cable TV, for all these years you’ve taken my money!!
For that…soon you’ll be replaced by Roku, Slingbox, Netflix and Apple TV.
Blessings upon you 4G and LTE for bringing us data at lightning fast speeds!
Technology is here to stay,
Evolving faster and faster everyday,
And frequently taking her old wares away.
Nothing remains the same, and we’ve come quite far,
But regardless of how easy technology can make our lives…some change is hard!
