Judi's January Artsy Essay topic is an ode to your favorite gadget.
O! d'ya know..
I searched my mind for a gadget;
a contraption, a novelty, a flippitty-flue.
I tried to pick something original, something nifty;
something that screams, "oh so very cool!".
I pondered, and discarded, this keyboard, that knifty knitter,
that church-key which is really a magnet, too.
what oh what is my favorite device?
something neat, something nice.
Just as I was about to give up
not in despair, mind you
my gaze, tired it's true
fell on something so simple, so obvious,
my pen! my clickety pen!
it's at my right hand.
it's my write hand.
o! d'ya know?
