Technology ought to work for us,
but today, I’ve reached a dead end.
Reluctantly, I’m forced to admit
that technology isn’t my friend.
I’ve reached out to ask the experts.
I’ve Googled the night away.
Technology ought to improve our lives,
but not, alas, today.
Oh, somewhere, machinery’s whirring,
performing just as it should,
but here, today, in my little world,
technology’s not so good.
In the middle of my National Poetry Month Book Giveaway, it temporarily became impossible to post a comment on my blog. It seems to be working now! So if you’d like to win a copy of Write a Poem Step by Step, you can leave a comment here. Good luck!
I'm giving away a copy of Write a Poem Step by Step every day in April. The book is based on my school visit presentations and includes a simple plan you can follow to create your own poems. I wrote it for students, teachers, and writers of all ages.
I'll choose one entry at random tomorrow and drop a copy of Write a Poem Step by Step in the mail—U.S. addresses only, please. I’ll email you for your mailing address if you win. And if you don't win right away, please check back again. I'll have 31 copies to share!
