I Sing the Seat Electric...sorta

This poem was written spontaneously just this second, but somehow fits perfectly with Chris' previous "Dictionary" poem post. Wow!

I wanted to write something brand new today
I got me a blank page
& went to town

This is it!

My new poem, composed
whilst at work…earlier this morning,
I wrote about the electric chair
in furious scribbled hand
on blue square sticky notes

Remember the electric chair?
Bringing death shock heat
Old chairs now retired
People today die in business seats
Leather and padded and rotating

The office moves
Some, but not a lot
This chair of mine doesn’t even buzz me
