Past Still Present
I may be just a chunk of history,
A dusty piece of scrap on an old desk,
You barely spare a passing glance at me,
You find me oh so clumsy and grotesque.
You see me as the past you’ve left behind,
Discarded as you move to better things,
Pushed so far to the back of your full mind,
By wonders that the modern age now brings.
But I am an ancestor of the print
That floods the modern electronic age,
The lettered keys on my front give hint
That my descendants have reached a new stage
For they are the new keyboards and touch screens
And I am the ghost in modern machines.
