Why god? Why??

The last year it was my computer that betrayed

For time and again it ruined its brand name;

So come May, 2018 brought a new expenditure

Safely increasing my light vollet’s temperature.

 

With grieving tears I bid it adieu

When one last time I shut it due;

For the technologically challenged me

Never likes to learn anything new.

 

And yet with all my might

I let my patronized hand by;

Forcing to come out of my loving comfort

Trying to suit myself with the new head with all the discomfort.

 

So, the Kindle was a little postponed

And I could not have been less joyed;

When in came 2019 with new promises

But oh, alas! I was hardly aware of what lay ominous.

 

I danced and pranced waiting for July,

Dreaming and planning which Kindle to try;

But 2019 broke my heart too early

For come January, I broke my smartphone curtly.

 

“You wanted to reduce your screen time,

Now you have no screen.”

Came back the mocking reply

To which I was not so very sly.

 

I pledge and vow to use and old buttoned phone

But how long is it going to last is widely known;

And so once again Kindle will be pushed down

Trying to fumble with a new gadget making myself a clown!

 

Don’t even let me begin on the specifications of a new phone

For there is nothing good like the one that I did own;

The ones that will have everything will surely be above my budget

And the ones that will comply to it will be merely like a puppet.

 

Why God? Why??

 

I know you are looking down on me

Scornfully saying- “I didn’t make that damned phone.”

And so I completely agree

But why did we ever let it become like meat and potatoes.

 

With that grieving sigh

I shut down my phone;

Resolving tight

To go back to that buttoned phone.

 

But wait, I forget

Because it is the 4G age;

And my old phone

Has so far considerably aged.

 

So what do I do now?

Carry my laptop around?

Oh, I know, I will succumb!

But which new gadget I should let me run?

 

With time I will eventually find

Something between a budget and a puppet;

And then I shall see how long it takes me to try

Before even that one goes down the bucket.

 

Though in time wonders do strike

How far materialism could hike;

A simple gadget troubles me so

That its going away makes me low.
