Voices Nationwide: SugarJ Poet on Face to Face | Nationwide Building Society


I heard someone say that,
“we are the most lonely society in history.” Immediately I scoffed,
Looked at my 4 inch movie screen thought, if I picked you up, right now,
I could talk to a face, that it would take me years to walk to. I thought, with a few taps on this LCD screen,
I could have a car, outside, ready to drive me anywhere. How can you be lonely, when everything can
be done with a tap or a swipe? I guess, just because you can,
it doesn’t mean you do, Often the more you can, the less you’re inclined
to do. It’s a funny kind of ruse. Have you ever been meaning to call somebody,
But never actually do. Imagine there were no phones, no Facebook,
no such thing as online. You’d probably find the time
to meet up for a cuppa and a schmooze. Strange that. I like my internet connectivity,
But it shouldn’t block my interconnectivity. So I try and combine the two,
I’ll send a message via Whatsapp, Tell a friend,
“put the kettle on bruv I’m coming round to see ya,
for a knees up and a brew.”
