Phony

Went for a function the other day and after eating. Yeah Gakware must definitely talk about food. So then after feasting I got to stare. Yeah that very thing I was warned against in high school. You remember the one where they wrote in the school rules that you should not stand and stare. I almost felt exhilarated for breaking a rule, except I was not breaking the law since I was sitted. Somebody recite for me my rights. The again I ain’t getting arrested.
So then as I stared brazenly, I looked at the old and also at the not so old. I don’t know which category I belong to since I consider myself a fossil. While the old were chattering away and sharing hearty laughs, the younger generation was engrossed in their phones. I thought to myself, how lonelier can it get.
It’s true these gadgets have enslaved us. Like that poem, ‘ who will eat the vulture, I can’t help but wonder, who will save this phony generation?

Meanwhile lemmi enjoy living somewhere in the middle of the world. Maybe I’ll know my age group. 🤷
