2050~ What the Future Looks Like (A Poem)

I wake up to her voice saying ‘It’s a great day to be and do’

I complete my morning ablutions and have my breakfast as she continues to chatter.

From reminding me of my schedule for the day,

To ensuring I tuck in my shirt properly and polish my shoes.

She reprimands me about my increased weight to which

I chuckle, thank her, and wonder what I would do without her.

Sighing I walk out of the house,

Already looking forward to hearing her voice again,

In the car, while I work, when I return home and till the time

I go to sleep.

After all, she’s all the company I have,

Albeit just a voice over a machine.

I wake up to his voice saying ‘It’s a great day to be and do’

I complete my morning ablutions and have my breakfast as he continues to flatter and flirt.

From reminding me of how I need to dress for the day,

To suggesting hairdos, outfits, accessories, and footwear.

He rebukes me about the fiasco of a date I went to last night

I giggle, thank him, and wonder what I would do without him.

Sighing I walk out of the house,

Already looking forward to hearing his voice again,

In the car, while I work, when I return home and till the time

I go to sleep.

After all, he’s all the company I have,

Albeit just a voice over a machine.
