modern housewives

A Poem by khalid

housewives have really changed





She sat

On that mat.

Against the wall,

She settled her back.

 A (Galaxy Note) in her left hand

In the other one, she held her ipad

In front, the laptop, to make some chat

And over there, the tv is also taking a part

I wondered, how much she would be smart!

To lead all of them , like a horse pulling a cart.

To make her stop it, from where can i start?

I asked her if she has any  interest in art

Or if she can make for us, a fruit tart

Ask for delivery, so perfect and fast

 my grey pants?- check the closet

haven't you seen my belt?

- I am busy ,look for it

And,  my wallet?

No need for it-

I've been to the market

All money was spent

My mind? My mind?-

what happened to it?

Nothing, but..completly lost..

thank you
sounds like the stereotypical housewife but engaged in all her gadgets, becoming one with them. she could get lost amid all those things and neglect her chores. a great commentary on today's society.

I think this poem depicts one of the possible events that we will see in the years to come as gadgets are being created time to time. Is it just me or is there some kind of a pattern on your poem that made it look like an exclamation point (which also may mean "an immediate notice to people")? I love how this is constructed and of course, we have to face reality, if ever this happens to us.

You ARE generalizing here and embellishing for theatrical effect, so good job. Like the format.
