Weapons of Mass Distraction

Shiny object, laundry pile,
random pic to make her smile.

Running squirrel or wayward
breeze, playin’ puppy, ruffled trees.

Dirty dishes, diapers, kids;
Tupperware…can’t find the lids.

Kitten purr and yummy snacks,
legos loose in stacks and stacks.

Online news that’s never good.
Take the breather? Yep, I should.

Facebook, Twitter, games on apps.
Getting sleepy? There’s a nap for that.

The world wields all of ’em, one by one.
No wonder the writing never gets done.

Somehow written for Poetic Asides, in between shiny objects.
