BEATEN TO THE PUNCH!

BEATEN TO THE PUNCH!

 

On Friday, COAST-TO-COAST AM,

Reported a new news item…

How I-phone light

Kept folks up all night,

Putting health at risk, in the end.

The newspapers caught on fast,

Before this poet could cast….

A post in the ring

(No weekend posting),

My reporting will come in “dead last”!

So how can I make a good Quip,

Since I’ve been given the slip…

Having it by your side

All night won’t abide

With letting consciousness dip.

Using smart phones for alarm clocks

Puts sanity into stocks…

Instant gratification

Stunts maturation,

One can’t sleep when the darn thing squawks!

Night lights are fine for some,

But that blue screen glow isn’t one….

It’s wavelengths make

Things easier to stay awake,

For night time, isn’t that dumb?
