Q is for Quatrain

The hedonistic pleasure

My lunch and my treasure

In the lounge before my flight

My laptop no pressure

Working on encoding byte

Crossing with data site

Got to have some cohesion

Before I could say alright

Splinter and other reason

Got a hug from my Indonesian

In the flurry of this affair

On my part drain of other reason

Nothing happened I swear

Just sitting here on my chair

Having lunch without a care

Finishing this work don’t glare*

    Very clever poem. At least I am familiar with this type of poetry from my school days. I am learning so much by visiting.
