Life used to be more simple, you will hear some people say,
Until telephones, and cars, and computers came our way;
But then, love it or hate it, at the end of the day,
The fact is that technology is here with us to stay!
Alexander Graham Bell invented the phone,
And ever since then, we are never alone.
We’re texting night and day and talking out loud,
We’re being drowned out by the noise of the crowd!
Our phones always ringing, in homes and on streets;
Mr Bell would be wringing his hands, in defeat!
But where would we be without technology?
Where oh where would we be without technology?
