Five Haikus About People and Their Frickin’ BlackBerrys

LIBRARY
The tiny keyboard
Still makes enough of a sound
To distract, bastard
KINDERGARTEN TOUR
Very important
The future of his children
Never once looks up
THE PARK
A child on a swing
Daddy, daddy, higher please
But he is texting
STARBUCKS
Can I help you sir?
Excuse me, can I help you?
Sir? Can I help you?
GOTHAM BAR
All businessman types
Emailing just like at work
But here they are drunk
