Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficent means for going backwards.” – Aldous Huxley

Technology… is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.” – Carrie Snow


as a gift

my sons sent me

an apple

it isn’t juicy,


or nutritious

what it is

highly stressful

as with each upgrade

this apple


support services

non existent

unless your are

prepared to pay

what a way to

boost sales

there is more

than one worm

in the orchard

while I implode

at the foot of

el capitan

    Very clever Lea! I can relate to your computer issues. Technology is great when it’s working but so stressful when it doesn’t! Hope you get your mac problems sorted soon 🙂 xx

      Anger fuels more poems… at least in my case. It is frequently when I feel strongly about something a poem ‘magically’ appears on my laptop? Go figure, it must be the work of the wee folk? 😉 We are on the way and I managed to finally post some photos after months of not being able to. We shall see. 🙂 xx

        Glad to hear it! Anger, love, hurt, can all be considered passionate. . . keep writing with all the passion you have Lea 🙂 xx
