With the advent of the Internet
It's easy for us to connect;
A few clicks take us round the globe
On line is - so à la mode!
The trouble is while we're switched on
We drive distractedly along
Our attention shifts and in mind's eye
We don't see traffic hurtling by.
A consequence of the mobile phone
We're connected but we're more alone
This tiny gadget – trendy toy
Is useful, yes - but does annoy.
Car legislation lags behind;
Use of a mobile should be fined
When at the wheel the driver chats;
An accident risk is at the max!
