From the book The Biggest Burp Ever
they babble night and day.
They talk about computers,
though they’ve nothing much to say.
They gab about their gadgets
and the tech that’s in their toys.
I hear the words they’re speaking
but it simply sounds like noise.
They yak about their tablets
and they crow about their phones.
They talk about technology
that no one even owns.
They use the latest jargon
as they jabber on and on.
I’m baffled by their yammering.
It makes me want to yawn.
I’m sure they’re saying something
as they gabble on with glee,
but I can’t understand a word.
It’s all just Geek to me.
