 ramblings and things

boxes


this is a world of individualised boxes
angry faced one to a car commuters
or travellers on trains engrossed
with their laptop computers
or head phoned cocooned in
a world all of their own
listening to music
on the latest smart phones
or sending sms texts
all fingers flying
or receiving a message
and immediately replying
nobody speaks out aloud
vocabulary in rapid decline
in this little boxed world
so different from mine
so much conversation replaced by
guttural grunts and slang swearing
people maybe too scared to complain
or maybe now this society is just so uncaring
you are old when police look young they say
but I think it's when you can't understand
what passes for conversation in a world
so constrained by the etiquette of cyber land
