Parents’ Love for a Mobile Phone

A free verse poem of parental neglect

I see and I hear the happy child,
Playing, laughing out loud,
Having a wonderful time,
Always having a wonderful time,
With their grandparents’,
Not with their parents’,
Their parents’ prefer to
Play with their mobile phone’s.

The happiness of the child
Ignored as if some kind of
Social media and addictive games,
Electronic binary systems
Have now taken priority over the
Parents’ own flesh and blood.

This is a real living breathing
Emotional sadness.

In the home, in parks,
Playground’s and on beaches,
Spawned from the heartless
Generation of moving forwards
To go backwards in the
Undeveloped techno-unlogical
Parent hive minds.

Thank you for reading. J.

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the desire to write
that thoughts acquire speed, the mind acquires words,
words become Poetry. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
