If I Could Copy And Paste The World - Poem by Vivienne Chen

If I could Copy and Paste the world,
I would Ctrl C on the times that took my breath away,
And Apple V onto the moments that went astray.

If I could Ctrl Alt Del those points when you were blue,
And Find and Replace those sad days with words anew,
I would Copy and Paste the world.

If I could Spell Check my sentences every day,
If I could Caps Lock and Shift your laughter,
Then perhaps I could Save my happily ever after.

If I could Undo and Repeat whenever I pleased,
And ignore the Microsoft Assistant with ease,
Then I could Copy and Paste the world.

If I could Copy and Paste the world,
I would dress it up in a pretty Font to share,
And give it ClipArt and Symbols and Webdings for it to wear.

But I cannot Copy and Paste the world,
I cannot Print in black, white, red or brown.
But maybe I could press Esc,
And all the world’s problems would Shut Down.

    quite often I find myself thinking, 'Control Z! control Z! '
    at the very least a backspace would be nice.

    thanks for such a funny and completely true poem.

    and I do think we know each other from school, so hi if we do and just kidding if we don't. (Report) Reply
