The delinquents were around again: The usual suspects. They touched down to raid my lawn, Chirping, squabbling, tearing up tufts Just to nab a juicy, wriggling grub. Their heads popping As they hopped around like clockwork toys. They scattered to the ether when they Caught a glimpse of danger. They stole more than bugs from my garden, They pinched me. I was had! I was into them more than Reddit. I was hooked more than a Vine. They nicked ten minutes from me And I didn't lose a penny. Who is the delinquent now? Those birds, revelling in nature? Or me, wallowing in un-nature? Am I so shallow that I get duped by cute? By the flash of a Catloaf? A derpy dog pushing A tree trunk through a opening That's too small? An idiot driver who can't park? Or one that smashes hopelessly into anything? The endless repost of the same image? For what purpose? Probably karma? I must be sick! The world outside my window Is real. I could touch it. I could sit for hours Enjoying those starlings and their antics. But instead, we choose to pick up, Instagram, Snapchat some shit, Facebook it, Then Google "How to get a life?" The reality is we should stop Googling Oprah! Instead, Google this: Modern life is rubbish!
