Yesterday I wrote my best poem
And, dear reader, I believe you’ll be pleased and thankful to know
That right near the end, as I was attempting to make sure all my 
brackets and parentheses were closed
I hit the back key and all was lost (I hate my phone, always)

What a great poem it was – it might have changed the world
or maybe just a few thoughts in just one person
It was so tight, so information rich yet so clear
Even I understood it

But it’s gone, except for the asterisk*
