CONNECTED-LY DISCONNECTED Oh multitasker! I can tell That you’re not really listening; But that's okay, it’s just as well Outside my window I can see A tiny blue bird in a tree With light now creeping ‘oer verdant knell Some sun-kissed dewdrops glistening! My words slip into thin air I fear As I hear your keyboard clicking And distress those words you do not hear; How much of it is sticking? So multitasker tell me why You hug a desk under clear sunny sky? Don’t answer! I think I know the reply! It’s the same for me as 'tis for you: We've way too much to do! So it’s better to rush than take a breather Quite frankly I’m not listening, either! I’ll repeat myself again just once So put this in the bank: What do I sound like – some kind of dunce? You’re DEAF – with computer to thank!
