Life alone,
In silence mostly;
Somtimes peaceful,
Often ghostly.

Life alone,
And yet;
I cannot say
That I regret.

‘Cause I’ve got God
And my PC;
The second
Never judges me,

It’s my best friend,
What can I say;
Got DeviantART,
and my E-Bay.

Windows man,
Jump and shout!
Garbage in
Is garbage out.

Color printing,
Ecstasy!
How much better
Can it be?

Surf the Net,
Late at night;
Google man,
It’s out of sight!

Who needs friends?
Not this guy!
Push a button,
Touch the sky.

Oh, and when I’m gone,
Just tell my mom;
To put on my tombstone,
“EXPIRED.COM”.

OK, wayyyyyy "tongue in cheek"! A fun little piece I wrote awhile back; just updated the computer references. :-)

For the record, I googled expired.com. :ashamed: But at least there's .org!

:-) Thanks. Really, poetry is my first love. Did you read Music Girl. Also, I published a book, "Hubcap Hill". These are listed under "Poetry" in my Gallery.
