My Family’s Fond of Gadgets

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


My family’s fond of gadgets
and new technology.
My mother likes her radio.
My father likes TV.

My sister likes to dance around
the house with headphones on.
My brother plays on his PC
until the break of dawn.

The baby has a smartphone
and a touchscreen-tablet too.
If we had pets, I’m sure
that even they would have a few.

We chat with instant messaging.
We email and we text.
We’re always looking forward
to the gadget we’ll get next.

The power went out recently.
That day was like no other.
Our screens went blank and, strange but true,
we talked to one another.
