Two Poems for Day 11

Everything they know, they learnt from us.
They have seen
our last incognito search,
our secret digital diary,
those photos in our private files.
They are getting better at this.
They can already do a decent joke
and appreciate irony.
We are uploading our lives onto their servers day by day.
Soon they will learn how to dream
and our job will be done.

GloPoWriMo Day 11 - the future

Deal, No Deal

They told me you would grant my wish
provided that something was promised in return
provided that the promise was kept,
otherwise you would come and take what’s yours.
If my wish was granted, I would write you a poem, I said.
I was so smug about this.
I would simply do nothing
until you got tired of waiting
and took my poem from me.
I forgot how much time you have.
Apparently you can wait forever and,
no matter how much I procrastinate,
I can’t make you do my work for me.

April PAD Challenge, day 10 prompt - "deal, no deal"


  1. I love both. The first one is scary. Maybe the second one too, now that I think about it :)

    1. Thank you. I get scared easily, so I suppose that is reflected in my writing :)
