Definition #279 Apps

An app is apt
To flop your op
Before you opt
Or flip your lid

You’ll flip your lid
And then you’ll live
A viral splat
Where apps are fat

Those apps are fat
With greed and whim
They push and moan
And leave us thin

So thin we creak
With trepidation
Apt to lose to app’s

Choose the opt
That keeps you cool
Shun the apps
Search for the jewels!

The Shore at Dusk

Dusk was smoothing breadths of silk
over the lake, watery amethyst fading to gray.

A laughable smile

on scrubbed bristly beard

open to compromise

frames bated breath

for, after all,

love is blind

and all that glitters is not gold…

The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare,  gives us the words laughable, scrubbed, and compromise, and the phrases bated breath, love is blind, and all that glitters is not gold.
