Lady Mic

I put her down

No she’s not dead

She sleeps

Took a bump to the head.

She dropped to the floor

I caught her on time

Shell shocked

Couldn’t stop crying.

« You’re ok, you’re ok,

Everything will work out »

She opens one eye

Takes a cold look around.

I’m scared, I’m afraid

So I take her in hand

She’s quiet and watchful

Won’t make a single sound.

She’s plugged into a circuit

Has problems lighting up

I try hard to convince her

But my Lady will not budge.
