What's in an email?

This communication marvel
Of modern times
At our finger tips
Crude or refined
Attachments plenty
In various forms
Some polite
Other's, against the norm
What takes people to write
In mean spirited ways
When kind words can be said
And happiness stays
Is it jealousy or hate
For these words to be written
If we ever get any
Not saintly, but sinning
But it's the sender of the email
And their literal say
What made them write
On that given day
So think before
You send that mail
And common sense
Will prevail

    Never did understand why some folks feel compelled to express negative feelings in emails. You hit a home run for me with this great poem, James! Hope everyone has a chance to read it. Love, Carolyn

    Yes, the ways of technology, but, you know if they are going to be this was with you friend, then they aren't really worth your time anyway just block them from ever emailing to you again. P.s. Good luck James!

    Well there is always the delete button, not as satisfying as ripping paper to shreds, but close. Wisely spoken. Well done. Regards Heidie
