Have you tried the outernet? I’ve had enough of in

Information superhighway. Just a garbage bin

Porn and poems, recipes and how to not be fat

Facebook trolls and living dolls, that woman who’s a cat

OMG and TMI and hello h a u

Messages from people that you really never knew

Switch it off and have a break and take yourself off line

Just before that though make sure you “like” this stupid rhyme

Time

An hour to myself or maybe two
A coffee and the time to sit and drink
It isn’t that I haven’t things to do
But I afford myself some time to think
The world is rushing on at such a pace
Sometimes I feel so giddy I can’t see
I like to stop, to focus on a face
But modern life’s transacted rapidly
It looks like I’m a tortoise sitting there
No doubt I’ll never win that human race
Another man will be successful hare
For I will stop and linger in this place
No pressure in this gentle life of mine
I grant myself the precious gift of time
