“WiFight It?” (poem / poetry)

Dear ISP, can you please tell me why,

I’ve developed issues, when streaming on WiFi?

I decided to empower myself with online learning,

Since then, the buffering symbol keeps swirling.

This is why paper books are important to me,

Learn as quick as you like, no use of technology,

If your provider tries, to cheat you with their cunning,

Use a speed test app, and report their shortcomings.

I know we are inadvertently discouraged from learning too much, as we might get ideas beyond our ‘clearance level’, but do they have to make so bloomin’ blatant!?!

Netflix – Little to no buffering; YouTube slapstick / dumbed down humour – no buffering; insightful YouTube video (standard definition) – bufffffering; deep and meaningful video podcast (SD) – bufffffering; documentary (SD) – bufffffering; Brain Training – the same! 😳🙄😒 You have to laugh though!

So, I have a mountain-load of paperback books, inspirational DVDs and pre-downloaded content for such occasions, until they decide to clear the bottleneck from my so-called unlimited, high speed internet provision.

I’m also no stranger to a nice, passive-aggressive email complaint with screenshots attached, ensuring it has a mention of notifying the telecom’ “ombudsman” (the magic word they hate to hear), if things don’t improve going forward. Sometimes you’ll get a free hardware upgrade, other times, things just miraculously improve… weird that, isn’t it!?!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
