B.A. Varghese- A Poem

Have Another Byte

Partake in the abundant hot hors d'oeuvres
of Google. Load your plate with moist stuffed web
sites, healthy news feeds, heaping spoons of mashed
tall facts from Wikipedia with thick
links drizzled over. Please avoid the blogs
because they are so full of ham. Inhale
with speed a Facebook casserole. Not Sure
why people like the taste. Check out the legs
on that, but grab the breast instead. And wash
it down with floods of email junk. Enjoy
the jelly Twitter sauce, so sweet at first
but sickening when overly indulged.
Too stuffed to have another byte on this
vast internet thanksgiving? It is, just
in fact, too much to take in all at once.

Now information indigestion starts.

B. A. Varghese graduated from Polytechnic University (New York) in 1993 and has been working in the Information Technology field ever since. Inspired to explore his artistic side, he has earned a B.A. in English from the University of South Florida and is currently in the process of working toward an M.F.A. in Creative Writing.
