My husband just came to the door
Of our computer "shed",
"Haven't you been here long enough"?
"Are you coming in ?", he said.


"I've only been here for an hour!"
I said "wide opened eyed".
Then saw the clock above my head
And realized I'd lied.

I cannot blame the internet
Or Forums such as this.
Although I feel I must stay here,
For fear of what I'll miss.

The air was thick with his distain.
My guilt was even thicker.
I know now that I'll have to learn
To read and type much quicker.

Thank you Eloise! I'm trying not to stay here so long, but there are soooo many poems to read and such GREAT talent here. I laugh and cry when I'm here.

Oh, my goodness sakes alive!  You should publish this one!  Countless thousands of people just like us would relate to it!  I had a good hearty laugh!     It's WELL written, with such a marvelous ending!  (Boy am I lucky, to have a husband who sits in the same room, typing on his own computer, and if we go half the night, we're communing together in our own way - both happy!)

Tee-Hee ...
I like it ....
Well, just wink at him
and promise to not spend more
than 14 hours a day on it.

Thank you Rosemary! Wow what a compliment! Thank you so much. Bev

Thank you Rus. All true too. I'm going to have to go to Internets anonymous soon.

And thank you Marge and Nan. If I don't lay off I may be joining the singles ranks. LOL

Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

So glad you posted this, because Rosemary's comment only verifies that I should get another computer so my hubby cannot complain about "not getting to use it" himself...
