Slowing Down and Staying on Top!! (Hey Michael...)

Weíre told often by our elders, brothers,
sisters, aunties, employees, others,
to slow down and smell the roses
but what a problem that this poses!

The computer simply isnít helping
and I wouldnít be doing all this yelping
if the Ďputer would think as fast as me
when I comprise my poetry.

What? you say, there are buttons for that?
Like spellcheck, thesaurus, things like that?
But if I donít post things fast enough
Michael will stay on top and thatís rough!

You see, there are those comedians out there
who write with such a fervant flair
they only want to see their name on top
and they get help from the cream of the crop.

Now, Iíd rather read some serious poetry
Comedy Central I can get on TV!
[but who do I think Iím really kidding?...
where else could I go to see such ribbing?]

The fair-thee-wellís are too numerous to mention
heaven only knows, they donít need more attention!
Like children all who play, skip and hop...
at least for the moment, Iím now on top.

I be dammed if Iíll play your game
Its not, of what, we are here for
But your words, "they make me smile"
And for a while
Itís fine, so, to the top
Donít stop
And make my sun, this morning, shine!

Well of course Michael still has the lead, but I'm a sucker for underdogs, so...
