a bump on a log

A bump on a log is boring
there is no desire
to learn about that bump
please conspire
to be something else
just be you
they say
it is hard
I know.
expose yourself
get off the shelf
on your wall
just sitting there.
show who you are
be a frog
I don’t care
just don’t be a bump on a log.


Erickson and Mcqueen

Erickson and Mcqueen
Mcqueen and Erickson
they are the same
they have one goal in life
to drive me insane.

the lights flick off
the power-point appears
the boredom sets in
as the monotonous voice fills my ears.

my hand twitches
she has done it
my mouse freezes
she rips my last form of freedom
like a struggling babe from my arms

my one remaining morsel of entertainment is gone
I can no longer draw the little boxes
with my mouse
around the windows square thingy

the voice drones on
as my eyes start to droop
I hear “marginal utility” and “opportunity cost”
my eyes finally close
the battle is lost.
