Treasure Island

John Carter Brown


Careful Surfer


I am a careful surfer
I'm watchful where I go;
I slide around in cyber-space
Gently - nice and slow.

I'm careful who I take on board
Along my cyber way;
Some I leave in lifeboats
To find their own sweet way.

But it's great this cyber-surfing,
I never ever dreamed
Of all this interaction with
Whomever up I teamed.

But careful is the watchword
Those bugs are on our tail;
Hold your vessel steady, as
In cyber-space you sail.

Choose your anti-virus
And anti-malware well,
And don't forget the anti-spam -
And all the rest they sell.

Look out for E-disasters
But be careful cyber friend,
Or you and your computer
May meet a cyber end.

Yes, be a cautious surfer
Remember - nice and slow;
Look out for cyber pirates
Please - steady as you go.

But now I must be ending
My simple cyber tale,
Or you and me for always we,
Forevermore will sail
Upon the S.S. Internet,
No anchor ours to drop,
Amongst the gigs and megabytes,
And now, the Teraflops.
