This poem was a bit forced. I wanted to write a little ditty about reading all the away messages, and I like the term "away message whore." I think it needs more, but on the other hand maybe not. I don't think it has good enough quality to be made any longer. Let me know what you think. (This is one of those ones that I wouldn't normally make public, but I'm trying to open up a bit so go crazy with it!)

Away Message Whore

Whenever I come home and sit
before the glowing screen,
My eyes drift swiftly rightwards,
forward in my chair I lean.

I read the away messages.
I am an away message whore.
These AOL invented and
had me in mind for sure.

Down my buddy list I scroll.
For every yellow square,
click on Info to read what
each person has to share.

Some people think I'm obsessive-compulsive;
some call me a bore.
But I just like to read away messages.
I am an away message whore.

  This is rather funny and I enjoyed reading it. I only read some of my friends away messages when I'm on AOL. The only line I didn't get was this one,
"These AOL invented and
had me in mind for sure."
Shouldn't the 'and' be taken out there? That is the only thing I didn't get. I have a saying that I'm a 'Dance Whore' because I can't get enough of dancing. This was very clever. Great job.
