Once we had ideas and smarts, a list very long,
We had Socrates, Voltaire, Aristotle, Plato, and Jung,
Ideas were written, published, scribbled and crafted,
Rewritten, edited, reviewed, reworded, compiled and amended,
We used chisels and pencils, quills, ballpoints and fountain pens,
Those days when content counted and words were intense,
Today, pen and pencil, quill, even the chisel are all gone,
Today, instead we have our know it all smartphone,
Who needs smarts, when with a line and a click,
You can be twitting like a president and be a dick,
