Wasting time

I made a big mistake this morning

To press my iPad on switch

Because without any warning

All best laid plans I had to ditch

First Facebook drew me in

Watching other people boast

About daughters playing violin 

Or husbands burning toast

Instagram then beckoned me

Just asking to be pressed

Another follow for a wannabe

Involuntary action...couldn’t resist 

Time moving on time to read the Twitter feed

Reading some dross gave me the hump

I could do without, certainly don’t need

More inane posts from Donald Trump

Time passed on another morning wasted

Only saved by the nagging of the wife

My iPad threatening me to be updated

And the ridiculously short battery life
