In Praise of Ear Buds

Author: Lyle

Snugly in my audio canal,
Magic, tiny pieces of plastic,
Connected to little silicon boxes,
Blocking the annoying world – fantastic!

Through thin wires of white,
Protecting my fragile mental pop,
Deflecting barbs of inane prattle,
With powerful shields of ZZ Top

American Idol hushed by The Romantics,
Miles blocks a shrill child’s cry,
Those little speakers do their tricks,
Until my batteries run dry
