kindle by candle

Kindle by candle
The world has gone dark
Another storm set in
Leaving its mark

You huddle by laptops
Now shuttered and closed
Serving as desktops
For notes you composed

All of your music
And all of your stuff
Was stored as electrons
In digital fluff

One simple surge
Was all that it took
For servers so distant
To suddenly cook

Your teeth are gnashing
You’re screaming aloud
Wondering why in God’s name
You trusted The Cloud

So it’s

Kindle by candle
You’d forgotten the rules
That fate is unkind
To digital fools
