Break for National Poetry Month

 I will be posting poems instead of articles to celebrate April. Enjoy!

Lousy Laptop Lament

You cursed machine
you ate my words!
They've dwindled like
the buffalo herds.

Shrinking. Fading.
POOF! They're gone.
A computery version of
How the West Was Won.

As Earth was scorched,
my muse was murdered.
Will a wild laptop
decapitate Word Nerd?

I'll cultivate.
I'll reconnect.
My clever words
I'll resurrect.

Wisdom from
across the ages:
Just keep writing.
Fill those pages!

by Brian U. Garrison

WARNING: Buffalos not recommended for laptop use.


  1. Cute, Brian. And I thought I was the one who sometimes swallowed my own words. ;)
