I Didn'T Realize I Was Lost? ! - Poem by Amanda Lukas
It started today, in the usual way:
Two lines get stuck in my head,
leaving me no choice but to finish the write.
I rush to my computer, leaping over obsticles
like a runner over hurdles.
Sort through 50 spam e-mails,
couragiously shield myself from
all while repeating two lines in my head.
I know I've got about 5 minutes,
and then they'll be dead.
I am now on such a roll,
my fingers typing out of control,
I'm loving every word I see.
I pour out my heart -
a true work of art!
A shadow at the door...
My boss 'pops in'
I click the minimize button
quick so he doesn't see.
After a speech, a few questions, a sigh,
the investigation does cease.
Back to the matter of submitting my clatter...
I click and only to see
the very sentence I've dreaded
is now plastered across my screen.
and my heart sinks,
as I'm too familiar with the outcome of the request.
And so there I type my address and password,
and I am (of course) ...
The 'back' button works worse than my memory,
my boss has gotten the best of me.
