Death of the doodleA very young, recently conceived graffiti,
A mindless line from here to there,
Yet not a sketch, oh no.
It has a meaning, you know what I mean?
A doodle can be found in margins,
Sometimes in books,
It takes all sorts but not the liquorice sort of sorts,
It could be rude, it could be crude,
It could have artistic merit, but usually not,
The doodle is dying,
Save the doodle,
Mobile phones are doodle’s row of headstones,
Nobody doodles on a phone,
Emoji, like the grey squirrel is moving in and taking over,
Long live the doodle.
