Nonplussed by Google-Plus?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Is Google-Plus blessing or curse?
It’s surely inspired some verse.
But here’s what I fear:
With the Plus option here,
My A.D.D.’s getting much worse.

Attention Must Be Paid

Here’s my limerick and haiku prompted by this attention prompt and this challenge to write about writing:

Attention Must Be Paid
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I find paying attention’s a pain.
A-D-D makes it rather a drain.

Must pay attention
to pretentious professor.
Can’t? Then pretend to.

“If I’ve what?” “ADD, sir.” “You see?”

“National Attention Deficit Disorder Awareness Day” is “celebrated” on the third Wednesday of September.
