Interactive Cafe

Interactive Cafe

Went for some food on a grey soggy day
to the place that they call Interactive Cafe.

Booths made of bamboo and recycled plastic
eco-green seats certified ergonomic

fair-trade sustainable coffee and wi-fi.
I fired up the laptop, went searching for blue sky

but all of the menus dropped down monochrome
and then my poor flat-screen went dead as a bone

and "ITEM NOT FOUND" was the word of the day
in the place that they call Interactive Cafe.

The servers were standing as still as the walls
and wouldn't look up any tables at all

the cashier just muttered: "Not taking requests.
Our wi-fi is down. Our budget's a mess."

Now I'm trying to find the Interactive Cafe
but its portals are closed and my pings go astray.

Oh, I'm trying to find the Interactive Cafe
but "ADDRESS NOT VALID" the menus all say.

Collection available! Knocking from Inside

What's on the menu? "Sorry, we're all out of connectivity today."
