What do they teach them at that school?
His granddad ask, sipping at his beer.
It’s the internet, I say, picking at the crisps,
Packet splayed open on the sun warmed bench.
The internet? he muses and I nod.
YouTube videos and Reddit or that Buzzfeed site,
It teaches them what frequency a wasp will hum
And just how many golf balls can be made each year,
But how to roast a chicken or to paint a wall,
There’s one whole generation that doesn’t have a clue.

It’s true, Rachel. There are a lot of practical things that you can’t find out on the Internet! That’s why I always say that technology is an excellent servant, but a bad master.
