This post is my contribution to the WordHigh July writing challenge, for the word: Padsamo (n) the act of pleading.
And also an apology to the other bloggers doing this challenge- I had hoped to get more involved with reading all of your works, commenting back etc, but often it takes too long to load anything!
To the Internet Gods,
I thank you for your mighty gift,
that lets me learn, and share, and connect.
I am blessed by it in my work, my leisure and my relationships.
But I beseech you to consider the recent issue of the slow speeds.
I guess that problem is the recent rains,
and I can’t really fault the rains Gods;
I thank them for the water that is nourishing our dry earth,
and allowing my poor, neglected garden
to claw its way back from near death.
I have heard you have placed intermediaries
in this land, called ISPs,
and perhaps I should bug them not you,
but you know I hate talking to people on the phone,
introvert blogger that I am,
and so I plead with you instead.
May the world be filled with data,
and good speed to all
Now and forever,
