My smart wife: Unplugged







samsung s4

Sometimes, we all need a break from these little glowing boxes. How do you know when it’s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us UNPLUGGED.


I have a smart wife now
And so do millions of others
She is decked in her best outfit
And she has a feather touch

Everyone ogles
Cuddles and fondles her
They run their fingers over her
And toy with her

If I am lost she has a GPS
If I am playful she has temple run
When I am bored she plays music
She has an answer to all my queries

She never every complains
Unless she is hungry
Then I feed her power
And she starts to play again

But one day I realised
She had taken control over my life
I had stopped jogging and cycling
And was addicted to her

Then one day she started acting dumb
And simply would not work
I took her to a nubox clinic
They said she had a viral infection

So now I know when to unplug
And leave my smart wife alone
Cause she can make you really dumb
If you spend the whole day with her
