'Skype' You Are A Scourge - Poem by Howard Johnson

I Try to read the verse
Line to line
'Skype' pops in
And stops the rhyme

Reading quality writes
Verse to verse
Giving them respect
For the rehearse

Tsira,
Greenwolf,
And Dee Daffodil
Writes sure to put a smile
On your grill

For 'SKYPE' your
Such a scourge
Taking and replacing
Fine writings
Leaving me with an urge
To push my computer to the verge

For I plead
To the authorites
Mercy
Mercy
(And not in french)
My stomach Knotted by
A wrench

My cry! , my cry?
And deafness I must defy
Can you really hear me sigh? ?

Its replacation
Toxic poision
Its transmission
Producing Progeny
Likes of the such: (

'Be Romantic'
So innocent is its touch

'Whats your credit score'
Luring me to a financial door

'Who is searching for you? '
What else is new?


To end this little ugly write

I am just alone?
A desireous reader of a poem....

    Being decoyed and seduced by the beauty of technology, I know how that feels!

    This was in my opinion the most interestingly crafted part, my favourite.
    I don't really understand it, but overall a novel idea.

    didn't quite get it, but this line ' be romantic, so innocent is its touch' is a poem in itself,

    keep up the spirit
