Cell Phone Folly by Yvon
Quatrain Poetry writing prompt entry

Racing throughout cyberspace
With fingerprints left behind
Staring at a cell phone face
Searching for things to find

Instant gratification!
So many people do implore
This ultimate new sensation
Is what we all adore

Quick clips on line
Capture roving eyes
Our minds once so sublime
Have fed on all the lies

No more room for sentiment
Time does not stand still
Minds looking for replenishment
Brains on overkill
