POEM

The computer swallowed Grandma,

Yes, honestly it’s true!

She pressed ‘control and ‘enter’

And disappeared from view.

It devoured her completely,

The thought just makes me squirm.

She must have caught a virus

Or been eaten by a worm.

I’ve searched through the recycle bin

And files of every kind;

I’ve even used the Internet,

But nothing did I find.

In  desperation, I asked Mr. Google

My searches to refine.

The reply from him was negative,

Not a thing was found ‘online.’

So, if inside your ‘Inbox,’

My Grandma you should see,

Please ‘Copy, Scan’ and ‘Paste’ her,

And send her back to me.

This is a tribute to all the Grandmas & Grandpas, Nanas & Pops, who have been fearless and learned to use the Computer. They are the greatest!!!
