“PLUGGING UP THE DIGITAL VORTEX OF CASH SUX!” a poem August 17, 2018 – Friday Evening!
It was dark; it was late – we-were-camouflaged!-Me-and-my-Mate,
And we’d purposed (that) IT WAS (pause) (ALL) – GOING – “DOWN!”
INTERNET! a-social-woe; I-Pads – Cells – Yes, I know,
And THEY laughed – calling me- (just)-a-clown!!
BUT! I’m-actually-AN-ARTIST, and my Mate blogs all my stuff,
And, between the two of us (pause) we’d simply had ENOUGH!!
So, we’re “bringing-it-down:” I-Pads, cell phones, the whole works,
Along with nerds – social moguls – and all of them “jerks!”
OF COURSE, ALTHOUGH WE’RE KINDA NERDS TOO, we paint & sing,
And make sweet love, all through The Spring,
And Summer – and Autumn – and late December,
Our names – you SURELY will remember:
“Oh, yea,” they’ll say; “It was THAT couple – They collapsed The Web; they WERE so supple; they twisted and turned AND SHUT IT DOWN – and Electronics-&-Phone Companies did cry, scream & frown!”
Anyway! (pause) It’s DONE! BUT – we’ll re-cap slightly,
To give you our reasons, which sparkle so brightly:
BUT THE MAIN REASON was: simply – to-re-route-all-that-cash,
That people were spending (pause) on their “electronic stash,”
On all their devices, upgrades & frayed cords:
WE KNEW, IF WE BLEW ALL THEIR WEAK “MOTHERBOARDS,”
That a lot of fine cash-would-be-freed-up-IT-WAS-TRUE,
For, after The Crash (pause)I sold paintings beaucoup!
For my theory was: Artwork is missing its sell,
Because ALL PEOPLE’S CASH WAS-A-GOIN’-TO-INTEL!*
Now, I sell paintings and prints by the score,
Me and my Sweetie, we get more and more,
Of folks’ “filthy lucre,” ‘cause NOW-electronics-are-gone,
And everyone’s-AN-ART-COLLECTOR! (pause)
It’s A GLORIOUS NEW DAWN! 🙂 – Yay!
- Would anyone be surprised to know that INTEL Corporation gets way over 100 billion of your dollars every year!!? and I’m lucky if I sell a nice, framed painting for even $100!! IF you-all buy a billion of my paintings, I will promise to insure the employment of twice as many people as Intel employs!! ❤ Yay!
