entertain us

entertain us

a constant stream of information
nothing satisfies
clicking channels
clicking links
but finding anything of value
that lasts longer than three minutes
is almost impossible.
fickle fancies
nothing keeps our attention long
in our endless search
for distraction
and entertainment.


poetic asides

For this week’s prompt, take the phrase “Entertain (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include “Entertain the Thought,” “Entertain the World,” “Entertain Guests,” and whatever other creative ideas everyone creates. I’m sure it’ll be “entertaining.” – Robert Lee Brewer

  1. Nicely done Heather! I’ve studied this since my CMNS degree and C is now in her third year CMNS and we talk about it often. It’s amazing to realize how bombarded we are with information and the how much chatter people have to wade thru and block daily. And, since most of it comes in tiny, sharp sound bites, no wonder attention spans are short and sharp as well. It seems to be the best coping mechanism. 🙂

  2. Well done. Great piece. I watch my grandchildren with dismay as their attention span is curiously short. I think telly and video games, etc., haven’t helped at all.
