Hieroglyph

The year 2018,

Smartphones and dumbusers,

Man-less cars crashing,

An emoticon for each noun.

Rockets in space,

Boundaries blurring,

The wars are rising,

The brains deteriorating,

Once a green tree,

Now a brown twig.

In this glorious year of 2018,

I still tend to scrunch up my nose,

When someone writes “your” instead of “you’re”.

  1. All these modern things but guess what? All the comments on social media show how little you learned in school back in the day. I cringe sometimes when I see these glaring errors and sometimes I’ll laugh when I see someone sees that same glaring error and decides to become the grammar police … the other party gets offended. Your/you’re and their/there/theyre are big bugaboos with me. And we have to learn the acronyms too – life should be easier, but it is not. Thanks for the smile.

  2. Indeed, sometimes I feel like I live the time of words without vowels when emoticons replace the words and when we tend to speak but not really talk.
