Modern Oddservations

“Free cash withdrawals” is what it says
On all those smart machines
Please don’t believe their dreadful lies
It isn’t as it seems
When I took out a large amount
They took it back from my account!

This modern world is rather strange
It’s hard to understand
And every day it has to change
All progress MUST be banned

I bought an automatic car
Since driving is a pain
It never takes me very far
I got it wrong again
Although I tell it where to drive
For hours and hours I don’t arrive

This modern world is rather strange
It’s hard to understand
And every day it has to change
All progress MUST be banned

I called a friend up on the phone
He said that he was here
But I was sitting all alone
His meaning wasn’t clear
And then he asked if I was there?
Is everybody everywhere?
