My Skinny Box of Life

Early in the morning I happily arise
Same routine, set just like a clock
Straight to the black box on my desk
No coffee, no breakfast just straight there
One button pressed then adding a code
This is the place where my life blood flows
Suddenly before me, is entry to the world
The latest news and the latest trends
Did he leave a message, today probably not
Oh dear a friend’s Birthday I nearly forgot.

Did they like my poem did anyone comment
Did anyone read Rob’s stories on my Timeline
Is catastrophe the new headlines or a little peace
Did the stock market plummet or did it soar
Hundreds of emails but none I really want
Waiting for replies, that never seem to come
Creativity stifled, as on so many I wait
Yes I love it when Yahoo it flashes alive
When I hear that Buzz my heart it soars
Exclusivity only, for the man I adores

Chatting on Facebook, to so many new friends
Creative people that stimulate  life
Getting a lead sheet, sending off a song
Booking for the theatre, a new show on line
Paying my Bills with such comfort and ease
Ordering my groceries, or a restaurant please
And of course You-Tube the wonder of it all
Missed the Emmy’s, no problem at all
All  missed movies, and love songs at a click
A friends new album, great humor, Netflicks

My Skinny Box of LifeWhile I’m beginning my day, for some its rest
The cats are complaining, when, will they get fed
Who would have thought to this box I am wed
As I hour after hour I happily travel the world
And due this little box, a great love it unfurled
Oh yes, suddenly my life it will never been the same
Friends who never see me, think I’m insane
Dear Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, You Tube
You are the temptress sharing my life
Never doubt my devotion, I’ll be a loyal wife!

    Comparing that box as your temptress and you being its loyal wife... What a metaphor! This is lovely
