An Elegy for my Kindle


I used to carry books around

My shoulder drooping to the ground

Complaining, whining, mystified

How to keep my brain satisfied?

I’d try to travel light enough

But quickly I’d run out of stuff

Nobody could fill my need

I never had enough to read

Three years ago I solved my quest

I put a kindle to the test

And lo I solved my reading lack

(And also saved my aching back)

Though others tell me “real books” rule

I felt happy, content (and somewhat cool)

Kindle had won my needy heart

I feel lost when we’re apart

But there’s a fact I can’t deny

My kindle aged, I watched it die

Its beauty dimmed, its actions slowed

It wouldn’t turn off sleeping mode

Last night the fight came to an end

And I lost my kindle friend

An empty spot I always see

Til Kindle 2 arrives to me
