Email, Email

By Elaine Betts

Email, email, go away,

Send receive or delete today.

I can’t stop now, my work needs finishing,

A deadline looms and time’s diminishing.

And yet I need to read a score,

Let’s use the mouse to scroll some more.

Like glue my hand is wrapped and fixed,

My eyes on the inbox are sooo transfixed.

Junk email spewing out my ears,

Receipt required box soon appears.

Now I’m late, I’m out of time,

But if I speed I’ll get there fine!

Just one more, what does it say?

I wish my inbox clear today.
