WAY BACK WHEN I COULDN’T COMPUTE

WAY BACK WHEN I COULDN’T COMPUTE

Way back when I was young, and in school there was once

A time when I couldn’t ‘download’ or ‘install’.

My brain would not ‘process’, and I felt like a dunce.

I needed a tutor, but who could I call?

I suffered through ‘overload’, a ‘surge’, and a ‘crash’,

Didn’t ‘click’, or ‘hook’ on to every ‘program’ taught.

There was always the ‘geek’ who caught on in a flash

They could ‘update’ and ‘process’ every ‘dot’ and ‘dash’.

To be like him, or her I needed to ‘upgrade’.

But how to get my brain to ‘compute’,

‘Protect and secure,’ every ‘password’ and ‘name’,

And ‘send’ and ‘mail’ it all back to my brain

Where it would stay ‘saved’, ‘backed up’, and remain

Forever in ‘memory’ with no loss, stress or strain.

Joyce E. Johnson
