Unintended Consequences

‘Twas two days before Christmas

And filling the sky

Were Amazon.com drones

Sent by those who clicked “buy.”

The children looked up

And they felt the lie slipping.

Parents said “Santa outsourced

“To get next day shipping.”

The children relaxed,

Curiosity sated

And went to their rooms

And for Christmas eve waited.

Meanwhile in Alaska

Somewhere near North Pole

Rudolph stood in line

To get on the state’s dole,

To collect unemployment

For now he could see

That his job, thanks to robots,

Had gone down in history.

North and Whyknown’uh Approve

Parents these days think names

Are unique if spelled a different way.

Alas we end up asking

“How do you spell William with a K?”

Discrimination

I don’t mean to turn molehills

Into figurative mountains,

But tall and short people

Still must drink from different fountains.

What I Worry About

Furtive glances;

Still no wi-fi.

Previous posts say

“1d, 2d, 3d, 3d, 5d…”

I hope four days ago

My scheduled poem posted.

Then I wonder:

Am I the only one who cares?

Then my little voice answers:

“Yes.”

Thanks little voice.

I’m An Outdoorsy Type

Sitting in the park

Amidst green and verdant trees

Checking my Facebook.
