BLACKBERRY


Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
that must be the Blackberry
that must be her ring tone
and my expression  turned to stone

Blackberry is so smart
sadistic from the very start
the minute dinner is served
demands attention as if deserved

The dinner is cooling
leaving me ever so fuming
Oh!  God what the hell
should be my dinner time bell

My husband reacts with a stare
in answer to my glare
My son meanwhile stands still
and advises me to take a chill pill

Oh! do I need this change
in the midst of my midlife
Oh! is it a fair exchange
A blackberry for a wife ?!
