Electronic Mother


She keeps her mother going
with an old pay as you go.
Topping the credit from time to time.
Playing her voice,
her videos and old shopping notes.

She posts a status,
from time to time.
On her old Facebook page.
Tidying the grass,
that’s grown all around.

And when the time is right
she’ll pull that plug
on this old electronic mother.
Sending those ones and noughts
adrift and on the air.
