decay

Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficent means for going backwards.” – Aldous Huxley

Technology… is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.” – Carrie Snow

decay

as a gift

my sons sent me

an apple

it isn’t juicy,

flavourful,

or nutritious

what it is

highly stressful

as with each upgrade

this apple

deteriorates

support services

non existent

unless your are

prepared to pay

what a way to

boost sales

there is more

than one worm

in the orchard

while I implode

at the foot of

el capitan

bisous,

lea

    1. I use to have the old G4 when it crashed my boys sent me this one. I preferred the old one actually. However, I will admit to be technically challenged. sourires!

      1. I can totally understand the frustration. I wonder how much poem art technique problems have made indirectly?

  1. Very clever Lea! I can relate to your computer issues. Technology is great when it’s working but so stressful when it doesn’t! Hope you get your mac problems sorted soon 🙂 xx

    1. Anger fuels more poems… at least in my case. It is frequently when I feel strongly about something a poem ‘magically’ appears on my laptop? Go figure, it must be the work of the wee folk? 😉 We are on the way and I managed to finally post some photos after months of not being able to. We shall see. 🙂 xx

      1. Glad to hear it! Anger, love, hurt, can all be considered passionate. . . keep writing with all the passion you have Lea 🙂 xx
