A Handy Household Tool

As great thoughts assemble from this,
it has never gotten a single kiss.
And while it produces essays on demand,
it always has a plethora of ideas on hand.

With many pieces to it,
this quality can causes some harsh hits.
But while blasting music for everyone,
it can create a barrel of fun.

The glowing light that shines
can tell you they’re all one kind.
Continuing to collect information,
becoming experts in every nation.

Connecting cables, pushing buttons,
understanding what you cannot;
linking us all to the 21st century:
“Quick, shut the window, don’t get caught.”

It surfs the web all through the night,
making connections without sight.
Helping you with everything that needs to be done,
it is your 12 year-old genius son.
