Internet Tea

Internet Tea

I can’t tweet on the phone anymore, I’ve got a date with my mouse;
must let my fingers do the typing, (not walking, that was the middle ages),
while I sip tea and eat blackberry and apple pie

I can’t face this book,
I’ve got to digg in deep, since the google search yielded
621, 784 results, and each of them might be relevant
somehow. Your poem? Incredible, I reddit , liked and voted!

Have you ever seen someone throw a disqus that far? I bet
her stats are quite amazing, what a platform
to have such numbers on the high resolution screen.
Sigh.
Maybe I’ll stumbleupon the magic number
And google plus it to infinity…

In hibernation mode, a few people linkedin,
And while I slept in myspace,
I dreamt of a few blog ideas.
Maybe you’ll see it on the tube,
but I’m still afraid of a controversial intensedebate
Oh vimeo, wherefore art thou?
Dost thou have the answers
to all of my social media questions?

“I’ll retweet the quote, tag you in the note,
text you, e-mail you, check your inbox, don’t forget to vote.

It’s been so nice to chat, friend, let’s have tea again
real soon….

***

Having a drink (tea, or something stronger) tonight with the folks at d’Verse Poets for Open Link Night Week 6… come hang out with the friendly folks.

    ha. i wish a few people would through disqus…i hate it…really a fun play on all the tech we use in a given day…go back 5 years and this makes sense to no one…i find that intriguing…

    • Anna @ waysidewordgarden says:

      Excellent point! So in another five years, all of this, too, could be in the recycle
      bin, including this poem, haha!! 🙂
