Kids while walking down the street
Crossing roads, I’ve seen
Waiting for the bus to come
Faces stuck on screens


Art of observation lost
Engaging’s lost it seems
Kids today walk looking down
Looking down at screens

  1. Good’n. Gotta suggest it’s not a “kid” problem. Can’t tell you how many of my generation (boomers) are afflicted. Can’t answer an email, but they have time to “like” and “love ya!” and post pics of their precious new pretend doggie taking a crap in the living room carpet, pass along yet another chocolate cookie recipe, and rave over the kardnutz people. Good post, sir, good post. Thanks.


  2. Watching the people around react to the walkers was interesting. Not many took it very seriously when a texter fell down the steps or walked into a fountain.
