Poem 254 - A Letter From A Laptop

From, The Laptop

18th August 2013,

To, The Unkind Humans,

Dear humans, all day you click and stare away,
Not a moment away from me, you can stay,
But I actually don't get the happiness I need,
Even when I've become your place to play and read.
The way you treat me is not at all fair,
I really need my respect's share,
Why? You spend half the day next to me,
Clicking away, and banging all the buttons harshly.
I might have made life easy for you,
So please think about me too,
My dear keys and buttons, won't survive for long,
If you hit it with your hands so strong.
Please reply to this poor, dying soul,
For, you've made me feel that your heart is black as coal.
~Gaurang Rao
