Poem Friday – Everything Goes Beep

Everything goes Beep
Author – Lesley Voth

It drives me crazy at the sound of the beeps
It is so invasive it gives me the creeps

It controls our lives no matter where we are
We get the beep when we reverse the car

The washing machine it beeps when its finished
Keeps going until your peace is diminished

The fridge now when that beeps it is my pet hate
we should have the option to deactivate

The Microwave does the same, beeps till you come
We go running to the beat of that drum

We seem to need the alarm beeping in our ear
Gets louder and louder like we don’t hear

Even when we want to cross the road
It beeps to tell us and flashes a crossing code

Open the car door and left keys in the ignition
For goodness sake just another annoying addition.

For most I am sure your life if just fine with that noise
But for me the peace it destroys

What is it that someone out there decided for us
To control our movements in the name of safety is not a plus

Our parents survived without following like sheep
Did not bounce up to everything that goes beep
