The Knitting APP

The Knitting APP

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

"

Just in talking with a hummingbird

It expressed concerns about the weather

Telling me it was awfully cold these days

And could we cuddle up together

Or perhaps, could I knit a warm sweater

Made out of many a soft colored feather

 

I accessed Google’s knitting APP

For a crash course in that art

Following instructions, I practised

Until I could easily knit by heart

And with it being as cold as it was

I decided to get a real quick start

 

We all formed an assembly line

Where I knitted and fitted for each bird

In no time at all, in skies all round

No more cold bird brrrrrr’s were heard

However, if anyone believes this

I assure you it is all quite absurd

For a minute there, I started to glean altruistic intent from your glowing words . . . here we are, rooting for unity! A woven tapestry of goodwill! Let us knit together in a hullabaloo of teamwork! But then I remembered I'm reading Dave Brown, the neanderthal from BC who hasn't a clue about writing poetry with symbolism & hidden meanings. Shortly after that realization, I reached the end of your poem & most assuredly, the joke was on me (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Obviously, I'll have to look up the meaning of altruistic but first I'll finish my knitting

Hilarious!
So so humorously good this one. In the extreme cold weather how can we forget the little bird out there.. So a knitting app is so much in need for them.. I agree. If you could fit at least one bird in that please let me know.. I will definitely try.

Very unique App... I must say:)
I sincerely hope they weren't cardigans. How would the little feathered buggers button them?

Oh! How harsh!
Do I note an actual lack of sincerity?
I hope what you really meant was.. read more

Just joking
some of those tree huggers can be real buggers
Well this little poem put a smile on my face. An App for everything these days. I try not to use too many though. I am loving the idea of all those little birdies in beautiful knitted sweaters. What an imagination you have. Mind you, it's been bitterly cold. Hope all is good with you Dave.
