The Phone (next day repost)

I’m sure I’m alone

in my unsocial tone,

but, I distrust the phone.

It is ubiquitous,

but, for me it’s obvious,

it can’t replace oneness.

I don’t need to be cool,

but don’t want to be a fool,

so, I admit it’s a tool.

It does keep us together

connecting with neighbor

embracing the stranger.

I make no apology…

dodging technology,

keeping the autonomy.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
