FUTURE SHOCK

by John Yeo

At home with Granny, who is NinetyThree
“More tea Mum? before you begin
to chat away to the boys.”
“Talk to the boys in Australia!
Your phone bill will be enormous.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes Mum, you will see the boys
and talk on the telly for free!”
“What! Surely you are joking dear,
Australia is miles away for here!”

Soon the computer is on and
connection is made through Skype.
Crossing the miles instantly.
“Hi Granny! How are you? Can you see me?”
“Oh dear me yes! I can see and hear you clearly.”
Very excited and laughing out loud,
Even trying to climb into the computer screen
To give her grandsons a cuddle.
Our wonderful mum at ninety three
Has had a powerful taste of technology.
