A Most Important Person

Contributed by softerware on Thursday, 20th June 2019 @ 05:06:12 AM in AEST
Topic: HumorPoetry

I must be important, cause I have this phone.Itís smarter than me; it wonít leave me alone!
It calls in my car, it rings day and night; Thereís always a problem that I must get right.
They call me at dinner, in bed, on week-ends; My pockets my office; it just never ends.

Last week I lost it, and now theyve demanded;That I be a test case to have one implanted.
Iím losing my mind, I donít have a life! I married my job; this phone is my wife.
I could just pretend I cant hear them of course; But my lawyer (cha-ching) wants to sue for divorce.
So I started a service for those too in touch; Just dial 1-800-HANG UPS R US.

I needed this this morning.
1-800-HANG UPS R US...wish my wife and kids would
understand that. This piece kinda falls into the same
category with a previous poem that you wrote about
technology where I commented how weve become
slaves to the technology that was created to help
make our lives easier.
Being a test-case...they are probably working on
an retinal and hearing implant that would allow us
to conduct a video call without even having a
cell phone. Sadly our phones have become
smarter than we are as we are starting to give
our devices that ability to learn from us. Our
want for help with everyday life has led to our
need to have everything done for us.

Dang, your poem was meant to be humorous and
Ive went and given it an over-thought
psychological overtone. I wonder if I could trade-
mark over-thinking? lol

Brilliantly written as always

Rich said it so well.
Great write!
I leave my phone in the glove box of my car to be used if I break down. Other than that I will never allow myself to be tied to a phone. I hope many see the reality in this piece!

oh you hit a raw nerve
its so ridiculous the whole phone thing
always with you needs to be charged
someone always texting
friends,commercials,bill collectors,alternate realities
no one of substance calls any more
damn phones and televisions

exquisitely funny! I always have worked around new technologies, but for personal reasons I have always refused to own one of my own. I have one for work, but that one is shut off as soon as I leave said job. That is, until recently when my family demanded that I have one.
Waiting in line is where they pull them out, at the bequest of it, the brain that it, so encompassing.
I sadly now carry it everywhere I go. But I still dont
pull it out whenever I am waiting in line. I refuse,
and in stead I use my own, however dull it
likely does seem.

Thank you for thinking this, and then writing it
down into a poem for all the folks here to savor,
in the recesses of their own whatchamacallits!

Ha ha. GROAN. What a time to be alive ... we are all stuck in our own little virtual reality. Iím thinking of building a time machine and heading about 15 years into the past to escape this madness ... I just need to Google it first! ;)

The test case line made me laugh. Probably not far off from that reality...Yikes

Made me smile..........and reminded me at the same time how technology that is supposed to set us free serves also to imprison us.
The phone these days is like an extension of most people/'/s right arm (or left)
