    A Computer Poem for us who remember life without them.



    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 bites.

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

    Memory was something that you lost with age
    A CD was a bank account
    And if you had a 3 inch 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 awhile.

    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 back up 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 in my head
    I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
    But when it happens, they'll wish they were dead.

    Hahaha! I used to LOVE that show!

    I remember seeing Richard and Judy interview Za Za Gabor once and Richard said, "I loved you in Green Acres. I think that's the best thing you've ever done". Poor Za Za looked horrified and spat out "That wasn't ME, that was my SISTER Eva!". :D
