My IPad Door to WOL


I've been asked to dig into

The well of inspiration 

Provided by my hospital 

Ladder-fall  duration


As a WOL contributor

Computer (still at home)

You'll know of my frustration

Can't send you up a poem


My WOLers will be missing me

(You've stopped me drinking beer)

It seems they did feel sorry cos

This IPad did appear


Now IPads may be useful

When travelling in a train

For us full-blown poets

They're just a bloody pain


I have no outside keyboard

One-finger skills a mess

But hey?  It opens doorway

To outside world, I guess

We WOLers would be sad
if you had not even an Ipad
Reading your creative rhyme
is great fun all the time!???

Soon I'll have my keyboard back
And wine to drink with meals
I've had to last damn six weeks dry
What a rotten deal ?

I like the way you tell the 'story,' the economy of words and the strong rhythm.

It can't be long now before you get your keyboard back.
