Poem: "I Have a Sprocket in My Pocket"
This poem came from the July 7, 2009 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and prompted by janetmiles, and is somewhat a parody of the works of Dr. Seuss (which I love).


I Have a Sprocket in My Pocket



There’s a telly
In my belly
And a sprocket
In my pocket.

I have a wristwatch in my wrist
That also saves my shopping list.
I have a hairbrush in my hair
To keep things neat and tidy there.

I have a lantern in my eye
So I can see what I can spy.
I have a mike in my right ear
That tells me what I cannot hear.

There are folders
In my shoulders,
Nanocaches
In my lashes.

I have a blender in one knee;
The other has a pot for tea.
I have a cellphone in my thumb
(Which I confess is going numb).

Yet still I covet each new tool,
Although I know that I’m a fool.
A cyborg’s troubles never end,
And let me tell you why, my friend:

Static lingers
In my fingers
And my ankles –
How it rankles!
