Goodnight iPad....a Book for Everett (and his parents)


Oh this really made me chuckle....and I'm the worst one to put away my tech at night!

In the bright buzzing room
There was an iPad
And a kid playing Doom
And a screensaver of ....(turn page)

A bird launching over the moon 
There were three little Nooks
With ten thousand books...(turn page)

And a huge LCD Wi-Fi HDTV
With Bose 5.1
Six remotes, and 3-D (turn page)

and a  blackBerry ringing
With Eminem singing
And a new Facebook friend
And texts with no end (turn page)

And a viral clip of a cat doing flips
and the bings, bongs, and beeps
Of e-mails and tweets  (turn page)

And a fed-up old woman
Who was trying to sleep
OK, That's it (she says)...(turn page)

Goodnight iPad
Goodnight Doom
Goodnight bird 
Launching over the moon

Goodnight Nooks
And digital books
Goodnight Eminem
Goodnight Facebook friend

Goodnight LOLs
Goodnight MP3s
Goodnight LCD Wi-Fi- HDTV

Goodnight remotes
And Netflix streams,
Androids, apps,
And glowing screens

Goodnight plugs 
And power lights
That guide us to pee
In the darkness of night

Goodnight buzzing
Goodnight beeps
Goodnight everybody
Who should be asleep

Goodnight pop stars
Goodnight MacBook Air
Goodnight gadgets everywhere
