Poem: Wireless Obsession

A random poem that sprang to mind. I was amused, and thus I share. Do not expect this to be a regular kind of thing.

My fingers run across the keys,
spiteful intent.

A free-range mouse,
gripped close,
my bidding is done.

Hurry, before it is too late.
Do not delay.
The end is near.

The cursor is still.
Starkly cast pixels glare,
silent, unmoving.

Two more batteries,
lost to my wireless obsession.

A curse upon the environment and upon my growing conscience.

  2. Yes, but rechargeables, a poem, they do not make.
