Obliviousness- Poem

Obliviousness

By Ben Fetterman

In the days of old,
It must have been more remarkable
When missed the obvious.
As back then,
Without the phones and screens of today,
One must have had to tried
To be able to miss what was right before them.
Today,
When someone misses a stop sign,
Or cuts you off in traffic,
You immediately assume
That that no good piece of so-and-so
Was playing in his phone
Instead of watching the road.
Or when you start to talk to someone
And they don’t respond,
They probably are detached from reality
With a pair of earbuds in.
Today we simply accept
The world passing us by
As we live in a state of
Obliviousness
