Cyber-Mortality..When I am an Old Lady

I collect Literature from times in my life in some hopes of needing some burst of inspiration. Increasingly bothersome the shuffle of printed material seems ecologically daunting in a digitally intense world.

There is something uniquely different in a scribbled side note of a lost notebook.

When I am an Old Woman

Inspired By: The Poem Written by Jenny Joesph

When I am an Old Woman


Cyber-Mortal woman tag decades of trends, 

Which abbreviated # hashtag , emoji, or snap chat the decade did choose,

it doesn’t quite suit me.

I shall spend all my pension on I-Phones and Tablets, Each penny I’ll Blow of stupid Tech Gadgets

And satin embossed smartphone bedazzles, and say we’ve no money to drive out of state,

I shall post meme’s of sleeping cats when I’m tired

And gobble up Gi bits in e-shops and design custom alarm ringtones.

And run my Wi-Fi signal all day and all night long

And make up for the mistakes of my cyber-youth.

The digital slipper shocking my cyber foot, 

As I digitally frolic in others cyber-ally mortal virtual space…..
