As we endlessly gaze
Into pocket-sized screens
We all become frozen
In an endless dream
If I find myself walking
Right into a door
I laugh and I say
“I must be 24”

We Re-Tweet favorite phrases
Re-gram favorite places
And constantly “Like” posts
On the great book of faces
We send Spotify playlists
GIFs, memes and more
If this isn’t foreign
You may be 24

We have movies and TV
On Netflix and Hulu
We have Siri, Cortana
And can’t forget Google
So call for an Uber
For a ride to your door
On the way back home
You can watch 24!

As we upvote on Reddit
And we view on YouTube
Swipe right to make “that hotline bling”
And snap our chats, too
Watch videos on Vine
Six seconds; no more!
I shake my head thinking
“This can’t be 24”

We are more than just BuzzFeed
As we swipe up and down
Digest what you need to
Then please, put it down
There is much more to life
Than our smartphones galore
Re-engage with the world
Be the new 24
