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..

ok, before i even read it... am gonna review the structure!!
what a fantastic structure which matches the title.... modern housewives try their best to maintain their figures.. thats for sure and his is written in a figure of a lady

ok, am a wreck now because am laughing my head off!! this is such a great poem!!
it brings out what the world has really become, women rule because of the technological advancements.... loved the ending when you started searching for your mind!!

I love the way you display many of your poems, clearly a lot of work goes into your delivery, and the proof of the pudding is always clear to me, a snapshot of 'her indoors' and a thought provoking yet light and pleasant flash. This is realy good.

thank you so much for the nice review
That was amusing. It's very true for all of us too. We have our smartphones and our laptops. It's easy to get lost on Digital Crack.

thank you again Jeff
Now that's what I call an apt techno savvy housewife! Though 'housewife' is only an additional adjective kinda... Lol

I like the reason and the purpose for the poem. Easy to become a robot. Life can lead us to bad places. Can forget common emotions and thoughts. Thank you for the excellent poem.

Nice poem.

oh the housewife! What a vision you paint of the modern housewife..with all her "time saving" gagets of communication... love the humor with questions and answers "fruit tart", pants, ect... love the way you ended it also... we really do lose our mind & creative ways to technology...
just a note... I prefer homemaker...and it is the most important job and the least appreciated at least here in the USA..and yet people hire others to do what that one homemaker did or does... I am glad to see.. you appreciate their value ( ;
