Prompt ~ MISALIGNING MULTITASKERS

MISALIGNING MULTITASKERS


by John Yeo

I’m a twenty-first century person through and through

Wherever I go I take my indispensable smartphone

This multitasking instrument often sends my life askew.

~

Checking the time and keeping my emails under review

Scheduling my appointments and texting my home

I’m a twenty-first century person through and through.

~

Concentration slips when my current tasks exceed two

Misaligning my multitasking it becomes my millstone

This multitasking instrument often leads my life askew.

~

By neglecting the main task I’m desperately trying to do

I blame my smartphone addiction, my curiosity is prone

I’m a twenty-first century person through and through.

~

When I discipline myself to a solitary task in my view 

Set a timer to work when I can make use of my phone

This multitasking instrument often leads my life askew. 

~

Turning my smartphone off when I have work to do

Making social media and online interests a no-go zone

This multitasking instrument often sends my life askew

I’m a twenty-first century person through and through.
