Dispatches from the wilds of Poetania – Vertigo

I know you’re trying to help,
I get it, really,
but seriously, stop.
I know that you think you know what you’re doing,
I understand you have several million hard-won years of experience,
I realise that untold millions died for you to get it,
entire species died out,
whole branches of our family tree lopped off,
but damn it, I’m not going to fall over.
This thing has solid-state gyroscopes
with medical-grade redundancies in place.
So please, if it’s not too much trouble,
can you just shut the hell up,
and let me Aeroplane on my Segway?
It’ll be fine, I promise.
I’ll buy you some cookies afterwards.

  1. Very good.

    The other of the two was better, but this one is still very good.

    • Yes, well, the other one was sort of a still-beating sliver of my heart.

  2. It’s all in the knees and ankles, man.

    • I prefer to fly by the seat of my pants.
