Just a fun ditty while I await an answer. Thanks Otis Redding for the inspiration. Feel free to sing along.


Sittin on This Dock on Poetbay

Sittin on this dock on poetbay
watching my time roll away
Waitin for an email to come
I'm just staring at the twitch in my thumb

Sittin here holdin my phone
I wish the dang thing would leave me alone
Somebody needs to talk
but their tongue always seems to balk

So I wait here looking down at the screen
hoping I'll understand what they mean
Cause when you don't hear it said
It can get messed up in your head

Seems like nothin's going to ding
And I know its not going to ring
I got five people writtin to me
No one wants to talk, you see

So I'll keep sittin on this dock on poetbay
bidin my time,
just makin some rhyme

Oh e e email, where are you danged email
where are you danged email, where are you?

Oh e e email, where are you danged email
where are you danged email, where are you...

Hey! This is just perfect! Where's Otis when you need him? Now I have to go find this tune on my Amazon station. I love it!! Otis Redding too plus I miss him! Clever is as Clever does. :)
