Modern haiku

I wonder whether the eternal truths of Zen Buddhism can be applied to our modern, crazy, frenetic lifestyle, with its twitters, texting, iPhones, and constant barrage of multitasked mayhem. Here is my humble attempt to create some appropriate Zen haiku. You might feel the urge to create some as well:

Wisdom for our age,
Timeless yet modern: never
Email in anger

So efficiently
I get three things done at once
Yet, I have no time

In your lover’s eyes
Your cellphone is reflected.
Do not answer it
