A Poem For Those Over 30
Funny Poem Age Related
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.
