Nothing really

Default Nothing really

Today I decided that I would write
so computer bound with all my might
I sat and stared at MS Word
my belly rumbled...I need a turd.

Ablutions done, its time to write
but distracted minds enjoy a fight
so, for a moment, I browse online
I click the 'E' and Googled "crime"

Within one hour my mind seems full
with pointless knowledge, mostly dull
a war on terror, we're all gonna die
from bombs or cancer, I just wanna cry.

An hour more, I've read so much
but in my mind I cannot touch
a single fact of any use
grab the rope, I'll tie the noose.

I've read about London, Rome and Paris
I've read opinions on vile Rolf Harris,
I know how many kilometers are in ten mile
I even watched the Oscar trial.

I checked my weight and BMI
I'm overweight and so must try
to eat more fruit and veg and greens
there's a new diet, you just eat beans?

Coffee's bad, drink more water
Lady Diana has a daughter?
oh wait, no, it's just rumour
"top ten jokes", time for humour.

I try again to write, in vain,
my left arm has a shooting pain
I'm gonna die, it makes me think
I'll check out Wills and click the link.

The pain is worse, maybe a nerve?
I catch a image of a spine in curve.
I straighten up and pain does ease
Oh, shit, I may have heart disease.

I do a test and pass it fine
seems I drink too much wine
I'll cut that back, be a better man
quit smoking too, when I can.

I read about that Suarez bite,
I watched again that Tyson fight,
Was Bin Laden really killed?
Why is it beer is not distilled?

Poverty stricken, must be more frugal,
tighten our belts, so says Google,
I'm selfish and greedy to want nice things
Ewww, that's horrid, bed bugs have wings?

What's the difference between its and it's?
Can too many eggs give you the shits?
Is alot one word or is it two?
Weirdest colours and shades of blue?

Stupid names of celebrity babies,
warning of TB, AIDS and Rabies
TV awards for this and that
"Man's Arrest For Killing Cat"

The day is done and gone forever
all this reading, I'm no more clever
In fact I'm spent, not left my house
all from clicking this soddin' mouse.

"You look tired" says my wife,
I shake my head at this silly life.
"Done much today?" she asks me clearly.
I shake my head "Nothing really".

There are three types of people in this world. There are those that can count, and those that can't...

Interesting. I enjoyed it on the whole, especially on how the narrator seemed to appear really confused, having a lot on his mind and wanting to accomplish something yet at the same time, it ends with nothing. A very typical and realistic part of many lives.

He laughed. And I laughed. But our laughter weren't the only thing we were shaking with.

This is basically my life. It makes me sick. I think I need to just... not have the internet. It carries too many distractions.
