A Geek’s Poem for Her Many Devices
A contemplative mood about gadgets and gizmos ended up allowing the silliness to creep in, as usual. I try to turn off the EMFs at night, but something is always stirring. Enjoy!

Now I lay me down to sleep, my phone, for now, retired.
My GPS waits silently; no “satellites acquired.”
A laptop blinks goodnight and fades and, although mute, still mired
in web connections ‘cross the world; synapses left unfired.
Bless all the gadgets, big and small, that keep me sane and hired.
The apps I use, the ones I don’t and all those still desired.
While I sleep may virus scans on all things plugged and wired
Detect and clean all nasty bugs and heal them as required.
And one more thing, Lord, I would ask before I get too tired.
Direct, recharge and heal me, too, lest my time be expired.
