MISCELANEOUS 21ST CENTURY POEMS.
Poems of the 21st Century
AFLOAT IN A SEA OF COMPUTERS.
Well here we are not far away,
From a quarter way through.
Computers of the 90's dominate
And will for a while it's true.
So why in the name of industry,
To which humans all aspire,
Have they not yet got rid of these cables,
Made out of copper wire?
Mice like the taste of the plastic,
That keeps the wire well dressed.
But feet tripping over them constantly,
Keeps Billy Gates well clear of stress..
Next are those big plugs with ties,
The ones that lock in so tight,
From Monitor out to Computer,
They appear to work alright!
Oh and don't forget the speakers,
The exterior surround sound type,
They also need their cables,
To make sure I'm tangled up right.
I don't understand why we need so much wire
Are we keeping the copper alive?
My desktop looks like a telephone dump,
Waiting for truck to arrive.
Well I'm thankful I'm not a repair shop,
Where computers and cables abound,
Here in the 21st century,
In every village and town.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED?
May 19th 2017.
Our world is fast changing,
The times are worse.
Everywhere the world is not right,
Bad is difficult to put into verse.
Television stations, Radio's style,
Are different though not new.
Computers are taking over.
While brown eyes are fading to blue.
