We are locked in cages
And regardless of our ages;
We are bound in chains
By the works of our brains.

God created man;
Man created phone.
Man has dominion over everything;
Phone took dominion over every man.
Our creation has become our master;
For as man rules over the world
So does phone rule over man.

Sometimes we pause to wonder,
Is technology really a curse or a blessing?
We are controlled by our inventions
And over our mindset and life, it has taken over.
Who will deliver us like the messiah?
For we have become slaves to our creation.

Yes, I agree, we have become slaves to technology..mainly phones. Everywhere you go people are on their phones texting, using the Internet. Actual calls seems the least likely. Fortunately, I rarely use my phone and only carry it in case of emergency.
