MODERN DAY BLUES

lasergraph

 

(c) 2018 Edward York


My coffee cup is halfway empty,

I finished eggs and ham,

I stopped to check my email,

But it was full of spam.


It's too early I think for YouTube,

But I'll still go take a look,

I will only spend a few minutes,

Then it's off to check Facebook.


LinkedIn is in the rotation,

And Instagram is on the way.

By the time I've finished Snapchat,

I've wasted half a day.


The boss seems kind of grumpy,

So I guess I better run,

He keeps asking about my progress,

On jobs that should be done.


I better get some work done,

Before he goes into a rage,

But first I'll check my Twitter,

Linked to my Facebook page.

    That’s a great poem, Laser!
    I cannot even imagine being addicted to all those apps! We would need more than 24 hours in a day...and there still wouldn’t be any time for anything else!
