Digital Overload

Dancing with Distraction Challenge Entry

By Paul StewartPublished 4 months ago Updated 4 months ago 1 min read

Digital overload

Interruptive and intrusive

Sucks you in

Takes your time,

Reality and creativity

Are friends electric?

Can't pull away?

There's always an app for that

Isolation, there's an app for that

Need escape from digital overload? - there's an app for that!


Thanks for reading!

    There was a lot of truth. I constantly wrestle my kids away from the electronics. It really does suck you in and take your time

  • Lol, nowadays there's an app for everything! There's even an app to remind people to pee 🤣🤣🤣 Loved your poem!

    Pow-pow! (or if you're a Stepbrothers fan - PAH!) This was like a truth punch to the gut, Paul. So good!

    Is this the final irony that overwhelms us completely? Nicely underlined Paul!
