Addicted to Stevie Taite

I'm late!
I'm late!
For a very important date!
I planned on sitting home all night
Reading Stevie Taite.

Her wit and whim are priceless,
A smile in every poem,
My friends were shocked, all wondering why,
I suddenly wanted to stay home.

But the problem is now fixed,
I read and am now never alone
I can take PH outside with me
Because now I have a Smartphone

    i've read some of stevie but no taite of late. maybe i should visit her again or later.

    the only thing i would change is taking the a out of the last line (and i don't mean the a in smartphone
    or in because OR in have) .

    no smartphone do i have.
    my phone's as dumb and i.
    i don't get to read PH much,
    and that's the reason why. thanks for sharing. bri (Report) Reply

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –

Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
