Up all night, I couldn't sleep.
My brain abuzz, my fingers flying,
multi-tasking to the max.
I messaged friends in far-flung places,
while climbing levels in two games,
I ordered burgers from my
favorite online bistro, and diet coke
because I'm cutting down on sugar.
while eating, I shopped online
for leather pants and fancy shoes.
Suddenly, the screen was black.
All the lights went out.
I looked outside, the streets were dark.
I broke the internet again.
