Waste of Time

Zoning out on TikTok
one snippet
swipe to another.

Week old, "Squirt",
I watched his birth,
and could snuggle him
all day long,
he is a mini-horse
of course.
"Penny" the tabby
cracks me up
with her oh-so-kitty comments.
And "Buttercup"
the Nigerian mini goat
who faints, has my heart.

A snarky conservative
munches on lunch
while pointing out liberal
hypocrisies, makes me laugh.
I'm afraid the algorithm 
has my number.
Not much liberal content
comes my way.

Royal shenanigans
pop up a lot
and cooking hacks.
I'll try your shortcut 
and experiment with food.
Some yummy.

I've put a timer
on media consumption
time just flits by.
