Just getting computer screen fatigue here. Got to scratching, had to itch. Brain took off on its own with a dot-dot song. That's a problem when you let someone else hold your remote. Too much work, and not enough play can make Jerry crazy the whole long day.


Dot-dot—dot--dot,

dot-dot—dot--dot,

dot----com.

 

All for Google’s dollar,

stand up and holler,

all for Google’s finance,

dot com while you beller.

 

Cross your t’s,

and dash your do’s,

the dot-dot dance

can curl your toes.

 

Send your e’s,

make them your me’s.

Send them to your mother,

send them to your brother,

make a person

you don’t know,

like a cuddling lover.

 

Come on people,

form a square,

with a dot-dot here

and a dot-dot there,

and you Google over here,

and you Google over there,

life with a crazy poet

ain’t quite fair.

 

Yahoo,

he’s turned loose,

alternative search engine dance,

dot-dot---dot—dot,

dot-dot---dot---dot,

dot, internet folly.

 

Perchance we prance

to enhance poetically.

It’s a chance, dot-dot.

I like the vowel and consonant repetitions in this piece - can really imagine this would work well performed live. As I type these words - the poem influences my fingertips :)

Dear Jerry, i've missed out a lot on your usually witty, meaningful works, having been away from AD for a good one year. Now that i'm back, you sure got all my dots in place! Beautiful work, as usual. Happy Valentine's day to you and your loved ones.

Love,

Oh Jerry, time to take a long walk! I love this; it's fun, light, airy and poignant all at once. It's always wonderful to see a favorite poet strike a different pose every now and then! I've always admired your bright sense of humor, but you've let it take center stage here as it much deserves. Thank you for the smile! AND - Happy Valentine's Day!
