Smart or Not

Not so old that
Memories of back yard playgrounds
Or manual typewriters
Have faded
Even I remember
Saturdays in the library
Wide eyed about ‘Life’ magazine
And even when the TV was turned on
‘Bonanza’ was as rough as it got
We all have kind of jumped on
A different band wagon now though
Book learning seems to be what Google is for
Sports seems to be about who is the best
And not who is having fun
Are my best friends only on ‘Facebook’
Can’t I still send a birthday card?
But one thing that hasn’t changed
And won’t change.
Everything still has an ‘Off’ button.
