They say that necessity is the mother of invention
Was twitter necessary or was alleviating boredom its intention?
I say that boredom plays a role as well and that is father,
That plastic vacuum seal stuff around cds is just a bother
Is it necessary for rappers to have spinning hubcaps on their tires?
Is it needed that the I-phone have thirty thousand apps and higher?
If I was going to invent something you can bet it would be handy,
Like a magnet for attracting sweets and chocolate covered candy.
Or a souped up kind of flying suit with aviator wings,
But would these be useful or boredom alleviating things?

Funny...I had thought about doing a piece about the phrase "necessity is the mother of invention," because I had thought exactly the same thing about that phrase. :)
