Cell or cellular trap

A cell phone has become as necessary for us

As the air we need to breathe or the food we eat

Even kids are roaming the streets with devices in their hands

Looking for cellular connectivity, free Wi-Fi or a hot spot

Social media has trapped us all in it’s inviting snare

Forever flashing headlines captivating the educated

Tic-tok , YouTube, WhatsApp all seem attractive like the devil

Can you imagine a day without your mind not imprisoned

Behind the bars of the cell of your device?


Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “starts with or contains ‘cel.’” Find a word that begins with or contains “cel” and use it in your post any way you’d like. Have fun!

  4. I call my PD “my little helpful friend”, haha. You can’t imagine! Social media has stood in the way of friendship and physical interactivity truly so much, Sadje. It’s a wonder whether it’ll ever all come to a stop one day.
