Across The Niger

I worked laboriously on the idiot machine,
That failed to send my thoughts, across the Niger.
As it displayed a message,
That weary my mind "User Busy!"

I peeped out, in mid-night
If I can get a Dove,
To convey my message across the Niger.
For several hours I waited. Where is Dove?
In a strange land, "User is Busy!"

I was impregnated with thoughts,
That momentarily pressed my mind.
My eyes were red, As I began to labour
Like a woman in travail.
And it beep twice the user is busy.

Setting it on to dialed for ever,
As I watched the light going-off,
And the thoughts in me dozing-off,
Then, I married my bed. "User is busy".

The Cathedral bell calling for the  morning mass.
Tinkling, teared my heart out.
I profusely weird my words,
Waiting to see if "User is Busy".

I pondered angrily that I would smashed it.
But to no avail the baby was born,
And the poor little one cried.
User busy, User busy, "Message Sent!"
Across the Niger to the one you love.
