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 Waiting Begging Inticing "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 Wondering 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.

Well aside from the obvious, that this is a witty funny computer poem, I will add, I love when a poet can take an every day task, or object, or interaction or simple observation, and turn it into a poetic story, whether it makes us smile, laugh, contemplate, I think these types of poems are great!

FYI...Got a new poem up. It's not for the contest. Bubbles Bursting into Bloom. I was going through my old writes, Richard. I found a post from you saying I should enter one of my poems in a contest because my voice had to be heard. It brought back good memories. :) Hugs

And humans revolted against the oppressing letters in the mail, phones, transmitters and what not...liberty they shouted; we have no use for them...now 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

LOL! I enjoyed this -"turn me on" Play with my buttons" what a seductive computer you have, I think I've got the opposite, mine is telling me it needs SPACE. These computer poems are fun, best of luck to you in the contest ;) ;)
