    Talking A Poem For Computer Users Over 40...

    [FONT=arial]
    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 father 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 bytes.


    An application was for employment

    A program was a TV show

    A cursor used profanity

    A keyboard was a piano.


    A Memory was something that you lost with age

    A CD was a bank account

    And if you had a 3-in. 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 a while.


    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 backup 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 wish they were dead.
