Cyber Speak


with less sympathy
and more prescience
I could have made
a difference – I suppose

I didn’t see too much
awry in butchered words
and sentences
that made no sense

they needed only write
for me without restraint
their keenness overcame
my vested commonsense

some would learn a
way with words eventually
but most displayed
an awkward reticence

I’d say I failed to teach
the language arts as I
was meant but rest my
case as I can see

today they’d be the
morphing queens of
SMS in cyber speak’s
