Now I have not been posting in a few days!
Me Desktop pooter - the frigging rooter -' rooted '!
That's me mate, Keith, word for it!
Stuffed up right up! As is me, laptop - stuffed an nall!
Now I've started - may as well lance the boil!
I did try at poetry evening - open mic - at the Venally Caf'e
Hummbis and Antonis place!
I had in mind - skyping the monthly event
An open mic evening - at Humbis!
To friends in Florida - U S A!

Arrived - plenty of time - so I thought!
Now would me laptop - respond! As like - heck - it would!
Not bleeding likely!

Try as I could - me laptop stubbornly - refused to do as requested!
As me Ozzy mate Keith would - say - ' strewth! ' -
And some - other more rather expressive words!
Said - Ypsilanti - muttering - oaths!

Me friend could see I were having big problems - stepped in to help me!
She's from Florida - no relation to those I had in mind to see and hear
An honorary - Brit! - is me freieind at the poetry evening!
In offering help! - that readily - I accepted!
Only to find me 'kin - mouse were not playing the game!
Try as I might - laptop refused to recognize - the bleeding mouse!
Both wifi mouse and laptop - now just not playing the game!
Added to all of that - distractions - others needing - to talk!
I am a bloke - who can not remotely multitask!

So I decided - giving in to the last and final option remaining
Were to - quit - my attempt - to Skype - poetry evening!

The poetry evening - were just amazing!
As fore my friend in FL - my friend had forgotten all about it!

Both now unstuffed up - both doing well - as am I!
