Who Needs Technology?
« on: September 21, 2012, 09:16:29 AM »
 

I  have a little Satnav
It sits there in my car
A Satnav is a driver's  friend
It tells you where you are
 
I have a little  Satnav
I've had it all my life
It’s better than the normal ones
My  Satnav is my wife
 
It gives me full instructions
Especially how  to drive
"It's thirty miles an hour", it says
"You're doing thirty  five"
 
It tells me when to stop and start
And when to use the  brake
And tells me that it's never ever
Safe to overtake
 
It  tells me when a light is red
And when it goes to green
It seems to know  instinctively
Just when to intervene
 
It lists the vehicles  just in front
And all those to the rear
And taking this into  account
It specifies my gear.
 
I'm sure no other driver
Has  so helpful a device
For when we leave and lock the car
It still gives  its advice

It fills me up with counselling
Each journey's pretty  fraught
So why don't I exchange it
And get a quieter sort?

Ah  well, you see, it cleans the house,
Makes sure I'm properly fed,
It  washes all my shirts and things
And - keeps me warm in bed!

 
Despite  all these advantages
And  my tendency to scoff,
I  do wish that once in a while
I  could turn the damned thing off.

Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
