Read: a made-up word for the new year!

Techneptitude

 Linda Cosgriff

 

The science

of misunderstanding an appliance.

 

The groan

accompanying a new phone.

 

The cry
as an elderly computer dies.

 

The ache
for a simpler age,
when a book had a page.

 

Techneptitude –

technological stupidity

with a hint of decrepitude.
