Obsessed with flat

It's funny
How did a computer
A silly computer
A flat screened computer
Become my obsession?
I wake up
There it is
"Turn me on"
"play with my buttons"

I look at the bright screen
Remembering the Poltergeist warning
"Don't go into the light"
But it's so pretty!
I'm sure I'll be alright 

Eyes see
Pupils dilate
Pulse quickens
As my fingers tap feverishly on keys
Traveling to different places with ease
Who else sees 
Images like these
Hers and hims and other me..s
Infected by their computer disease

Friends I connect with
Around the clock
Ticking while I'm talking
And wrestling with a sock
Late for work again
What a shock

A cup of coffee 
on the keyboard spilled
My glowing obsession 
is sadly killed
Emotional me
With remorse I'm filled
Then I pause until I'm chilled

I reach for my smart phone
Thankfuly I'm OK
I can keep in touch anyway
Here in my pocket
I have a way to play
A portable flat screened obsession
I can access night and day!

For Carol's Computer Contest.

    And humans revolted against the oppressing letters in the mail, phones, transmitters and what not...liberty they shouted; we have no use for we have a computer and internet....and soon, we became their slaves! Enjoyed your write, Richard. Let's have a computer free day!! // paul

    I believe technology was to free us . . . but the opposite is true . . . we are almost a 24/7 connected interface! Love it, hate it, I guess I better try and control it! Might want to get an otter box for the phone!!

    Richard, I think you comment on almost 90% of the human society. Technology has ruined this to sit in front of the computer while our butts get bigger . A seven Blessings dear friend Eve
