An Ode to an iPad2

To the tune: "I, The Lord of Sea and Sky",

I now own an iPad 2;
And for asking, I thank you. 
I can write my blog on it,
If you give a sh...
It is shiny, black and thin;
I can make the picture spin!
I need never get my scrawny butt
Out of bed!

It is mine, Lord! iPad2, Lord!
The world will never be the same.
Not let go, Lord, of this Apple
It is mine, all mine; for no-one else!

I now own an iPad2.
Not one, but cameras two;
Downloading many an App,
Lots of cr..
Apps for playing games all day;
Let the people never say
That this toy will change my life;
Hated by my wife!

It is mine, Lord! iPad2 Lord!
The world will never be the same.
The prince of Gadgets; none to match it.
Forgive the smugness of my verse. 


  1. Your poetry just gets better and better!

    What with your new toy and your post as Poet Laureate, how will you ever have time for the Whitton incumbancy?

  2. One of these days you will just disappear within the complex magnetic field generated by all these electronic gizmos. There will just be some mangled wires, a little heap of dust and a plastic dog-collar and all we shall have to remember you by will be the ghostly echoes of an erstwhile blog.

    Have a nice day!

  3. Ho ho! Don't you love it? I've got the BCP on mine and I preach from it, too. In addition to having fun.

  4. Grrr! You've just inspired in me the sin of envy, David! Ever since trying out my daughter-in-law's I've yearned for one, but doubt I'll ever get one. Sigh....

  5. So glad you posted this. I will now be singing it all day except that iPad one doesn't quite fit. I love mine too. Pops into a bag. I have even written sermons on it.
