HIGH TECHNOLOGY | By: Willy Senkiwsky | | Category: Short Story - R&B Bookmark and Share



Willys cynical thought for the day,

Many believe that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Yeah, like *that's* true?

People always say, it was better in the days...
Many weren't around the times they praise!
Hmm, so all of a sudden this is night?
Now with a flick of a switch there is light!
I wonder what people used to do
Before radio when they wanted a tune?
Some learned to play some did without
Before mic's and amp's they had to shout!
Don't bother asking you won't get an apology
Because I really dig all this high technology!

I was a 'shade tree' mechanic in my backyard
Now my ride's fuel injected and turbocharged!
No way I could've ever done that
Hell, I was lucky to even fix a flat!
I have a cellular phone and PC
And ninety percent of my music on CDs!
Long ago, on a tube, my finger I burned
Now I use transistors I done learned!
I don't believe the bullshit they call astrology
Than met Madam Zelda; online, now, that's high technology!

Now you don't talk ya spell
GTH meaning Go To Hell!
Stuff that was religion is now theology
That's the only downside to high technology!

Finally, I broke down and got a 'virtual' date
Don't you know she still made me wait?!
Even after I bought her FTD flowers
I had to wait three goddamn hours!
I bought new batteries for hearing aid
Not knowing their useless on a 'puter date!
I have an insulin pump and plastic thigh
Pacemaker keeps my heart from saying goodbye!
Ask all you want you won't get an apology
Because I'm really into this high technology!

I'm the first in line for a silicon chip
With that I'll be the hippest of the hip!
I've been told my math will improve
They have to wait till the FDA approves!
I already been waiting three years
It'll fill, some, the space 'tween my ears!
I'll see a dr. to write a Viagra script
Than I will be ready to 'let er rip!'
Will you stop asking? I ain't giving an apology
Because things go better with high technology!!!...
