The title tells it all.

I love my computer,
am distraught when it doesn't work.

To an optimist,
down-time might be an opportunity
time to get something else done.
Filing, for instance
all those rejection slips
I keep for Uncle Sam,
should he ask if I really am a writer.

I am, I am.
I could show him proof.


Naaahhh! I really don't want to file.
Let the stack grow to the ceiling.

Record-keeping?
I don't want to do that either.
It's boring, and doesn't bring joy
or any other emotion.

What else might I do
when the computer is down?

I know! I could write poetry!

I can, can't I?

LOL! I know exactly how you feel. Well, you certainly can entertain, whatever you want to call your work. Enjoyed every line.
