~ The Internet ~

The Internet has joined the world, came in with quite a splash
To make our lives much easier, communication with panache

We all use it in our work place, we use it in our home
We use it when we're with our friends, or when we are alone

We send an e-mail to our friends, both close or far away
No need for paper and a pen, like the old fashioned way

We pass away the times we're bored, with Facebook and the like
We play the online games with ease, with sound and flashing light

We do our banking, paying bills, with just a simple click
No need to send away for things, hit 'search' and then we pick

For those who find themselves alone, a mate they do desire
Many sites for them to find, someone who lights their fire

All in all, I'd say it's great, this modern innovation
Until, that is, something goes wrong, then comes the aggravation

The servers down, the memory's full, or virus you downloaded
The computer crashes in blink, as if something exploded

What do you do to get this fixed, if you're not computer savvy
You call a tech, charging by the hour , this too drives you crazy

I guess we've come to far to stop, go back to the old way
The Internet has all us hooked, I think it's here to stay

MARLYS, YOU ARE SO CORRECT ABOUT THE INTERNET , I CAN'T GET A THING DONE. I'M ADDICTED TO THE KEY BOARD AND KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH FRIENDS AND PASSING ON INFORMATION.
I DID HEAR THROUGH THE GRAPE VINE THAT OBAMA'S ADMINISTRATION WAS THINKING OF CLOSING IT DOWN FOR A PEROID OF TIME, THAT'S WHAT I READ, THIS SHOULD CAUSE A REAL EXPLOSION. PEOPLE WILL BE IN AN OUTRAGE. WAR ON THE HORIZON, WOE THIS HAPPPEN. THANKS FOR SHARING THE MESSAGE GIRL ALWAYS A DELIGHT TO READ YOUR POEMS.
LOVE BRENDA

That would certainly put the "Kabosh" on things, wouldn't it???
I really down't see how he could do that..The workd market would cease

I had problems with my modem and it took me 5 hours on the phone with the provider to get it resolved..I was so frustrated I thought I'd vent by writting this poem

Thanks for stopping in for a peek!!............

Marlys, you one some kind of poet, I don't think that there is anything that you cannot put into and make it beautiful. Thank you for sharing this funny, funny adventure. God bless.
