In Honor of National Poetry Month...

I don't write poetry often, but I had a moment, so here ya go. My apologies in advance for any hyperlinks added by Blogger. The original had none, and I'm not sure what to do to eliminate them.


Across the world
Across the wires,
We speak it all
And never tire
Of jokes and jabs
And jibes and jerks,
Of subtle knives
To do the work

We read each other’s
Thoughts to sleep
While others try
To stalk and creep.
To hide our thoughts
The only way
Is shut things down
And never play.

Yes, we’re social
True enough
But somehow empty
Too bad, that’s tough.
We want to know
What others think
But when we learn
We want to drink

Silly species,
The human race:
Machines advance
We don’t keep pace.
