One Single Impression: Inbox

I n b o x

Dad's inbox was full
nine letters to write
fifty-five to read
how did he ever?

My inbox is full
fifty thousand plus
e-mails here to cull
how will I ever?

Catching up is hard
some say can't be done
Dad lit a fire
I used the 'delete'

Two generations
apart by the years
harm done is trifling
we did what it took
