This is not a poem, I'm venting...
Attention spans are getting shorter and shorter
I believe cell phones are one of the primary causes
"Back in the day," you had to find a phone to call someone
Or you spoke to them in person
Now a phone is always as close as purse or pocket
Even the phone "call" is becoming passe
It's being replaced by "texting"
When will we stop calling them "phones?"
Texting has already turned email into the new "snail mail"
Texting while watching a movie?
Don't even get me started on this disgrace
Manners are dead
Must people have access to each other during every waking moment?
They fire messages back and forth at high speed
Where is the thought process in that?
The car in front of you is going under the speed limit
When you pass, you see that they are busy texting
Don't you want to smash your car into them?
Or lay on your horn?
Or force them off the road
To punch them in the ear
Yesterday, this happened to us, the idiot just happened to be
A highway patrolman
I couldn't get my camera out fast enough to capture it
I think he saw me and lowered his phone.
Or is it just me?
