Future Was

Dark Gray Robot

Technology, full speed ahead

“Embrace the future” they all said

Faster cars and wider screens

No-iron shirts, oven self-cleans

SmartPhones put us all in touch

Letter writing? Not so much

But then progress reached its peak

Losing jobs week after week

Robots on the assembly line

One laptop replaces nine

We thought tomorrow was our friend

A friendship that would never end

But how could we have been so blind

Technology’s left us behind.
