Technology Is Supposed to Make Your Life Easier
Technology should make life easier
There should be no hassle or lateness
Everything is at your fingertips
Accomplishing tasks can be painless.
Are you a left-hander like I am
Surrounded by gadgets for righties?
There are plenty new tools invented
That my life as a lefty’s a breeze.
No need to be disorganized at all
Phones and ipads can organize life.
If you are lost or can’t find your car
These tools are sharp as a knife.
Are you nervous about parking
Parallel on a busy street?
There is a car-expensive and new
That will help you achieve this tricky feat.
And what of the weary traveller
Tired of lifting the heavy bags?
These new gadgets are small and light
To eliminate body pain and sags.
This century is full of bright minds
What will be the next invention?
I have an idea to suggest
That I feel I must mention.
There are still some snags and problems
With the software that types as you talk.
If you get ill your voice won’t be recognized
At the sound of your words it will balk.
As a person who types too slowly
To pass a typing test
In a world dominated by computers
To find a solution’s my quest.
So you see there is no reason
For chores to be difficult at all
Now that technology makes life easier
We can relax and have a ball.
