No matter how much time we spend
Together, there’s no harmony,
Not I with it or it with me.
TV’s directions to connect
With wires that all intersect,
Devices of another kind—
To understand, I’m not inclined.
Because I’m under so much stress,
I end up with a jumbled mess.
The iPhone’s possibilities
Are endless, everyone agrees.
For me it is enough to call
To chat with friends, and that is all.
The IPad, too, with much to choose,
Has apps that I could never use.
The printer is a mystery
For its responses wirelessly
To iPad, iPhone, or computer,
From three feet or three rooms or more.
That’s if it doesn’t hesitate
While I watch anxiously and wait.
Computer is my enemy.
It’s smarter than I’ll ever be.
It stops e-mail from coming in,
And then it will not let me “send.”
It sadly has no guarantees
That it won’t quit or crash or freeze.
Though “user friendly,” said to be,
Technology’s no friend to me.
