One relief I have about the Internet
Is it allows me the opportunity
To converse with a few of my friends
From my old home base.
There is an online chatroom
Some of them frequent
Discussing their lives and their craft
In the off-season from the insanity.
The activity in there has slowed
Since November has come and gone
But, a handful of regulars still appear
To hang out and talk.
They still have weekly get-togethers
On Friday nights at a coffee shop
I used to attend sporadically
For fun and shenanigans.
I miss such merriment
As I am many miles away
The chatroom is my only outletTo my comrades back in Canada.
