Heads bowed but not in prayer.

Like heirloom, it’s the mobile phones they all care.

An ocean of people, but the lips are sealed.

Social networking without being social,

Like waging a war for peace.

The times are a changing!

 

No sounds of family chatter or friendly banter.

‘Battery remaining’ is all that matters.

Suddenly, I hear raised voices and commotion.

Reliably told, it’s the ‘WiFi’ that has stopped working.

The times are a changing!

 

The eyes are red, the ears are sore.

But who is actually keeping the score?

‘Sharing’ everything but nothing at all

A zillion ‘friends’ and ‘followers’ we hardly know.

The times are a changing.

 

Narrowed down to the self and the ‘selfie’

The line has blurred between virtual and reality.

From a land of freedom fighters and saviors,

All we now have is a generation of ‘keyboard’ warriors,

The times are a changing!

    Good one.

    Time and tide wait for no man. Change is the law of nature.
    But certain human values and principles laid down by ancestors remain unchanged.
