I recall when growing up, there was just so much to see
A world that felt so massive once, now’s a big community
We used to check the papers, for the work to pay our way
In modern times it’s easy, just a computer click away
An adult now, I worry, whilst the youth are led astray
An eagerness to show off, put their lives out on display
Their need to get approval, but so quick to say “it sucks”
Get naked for attention, then purse their lips like a ducks
It’s sad to say this generation has lost the power to mix
Don’t talk unless on mobile phones, while trolling others pics
They’d rather all sit lonely, with their best friend as a screen
Jealous of the perfect life, or a place they've never been.
With all emerging gadgets, give the world much less to do.
Considering no time ago, that mobile phones were new
Whilst breakthroughs keep on coming, at this fast rate of knots
Question not what’s coming next, ask, just how much the cost
The problem now with Facebook, buried under, far beneath
Is a pluralistic ignorance, and the lack of self belief
Governed by the zealots, with no care apart from greed
Lead the way and live without, in truth it’s you they need.
