Computer Poem

  1. May 17, 2004 #1
    A computer was something on TV
    From a science fiction show of note
    A window was something you hated to clean
    And ram was the cousin of a goat.

    Meg was the name of my girlfriend
    And gig was a job for the nights
    Now they all mean different things
    And that really mega bytes.

    An application was for employment
    A program was a TV show
    A curser used profanity
    A keyboard was a piano.

    Memory was something you lost with age
    A CD was a bank account
    And if you had a 3-in. floppy
    You hoped nobody found out.

    Compress was something you did to the garbage
    Not something you did to a file
    And if you unzipped anything in public
    You'd be in jail for a while.

    Log on was adding wood to the fire
    Hard drive was a long trip on the road
    A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
    And a backup happened to your commode.

    Cut you did with a pocket knife
    Paste you did with glue
    A web was a spider's home
    And a virus was the flu.

    I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
    And the memory that's in my head
    I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
    But when it happens they wish they were dead.​

    Nice, a sentimental old person poem... lol


    Our lager,
    Which art in barrels,
    Hallowed be thy drink.
    Thy will be drunk,
    (I will be drunk),
    At home as in the tavern.
    Give us this day our foamy head,
    And forgive us our spillages,
    As we forgive those who spill against us.
    And lead us not to incarceration,
    But deliver us from hangovers.
    For thine is the beer,
    The bitter and the lager.
    Forever and ever,
