Mom Online Poem

I can hear them they are fine
"Where's Mom?" they are saying...Don't they know I'm online?

We're hungry I hear...I tell them please hush
Mom is online now, what is the rush?

They had a bite yesterday...when the phone lines were out
These kids will drive you crazy, Oh look, a pout

I dispense bowls of cereal, as I download a file
No time wasted here...I'm a true computerphile!

I check out the boards, and respond to a few...
"We're so bored", moan the children, "What can we do?"

I tell them to stop, and please do not whine...
Can't they see that their mother is busy online??

The grumbling continues as they wander about
"Mom's ALWAYS on the computer", together they shout

Unawares to me, they yank the phone line from the jack,
and say "Daddy's right, this is the way to get Mommy back!"
