GloPoWriMo – Day 17

Simpler Times


Sometimes I wish I could time travel

And go back to simpler times

Before this technological age

Before supercomputers, smartphones, flat screen TVs and viral pandemics

Back to the days of typewriters, wired telephones, fax machines and floppy discs

Forgotten technology; out with the old, in with the new


One step forward

Two steps back.

Daily Prompt: “write a poem that features forgotten technology.” From Na/GloPoWriMo

Unrelated, but my grandma sent me this yesterday. It’s a poem I wrote for my uncle over a decade ago (I was probably 11 or 12 years old). She says it’s really cute, but I think it’s cringeworthy, lol. I find it crazy that she found it now that I’m busy writing poems again, without her (or anyone I know) knowing about it!
