What's A Computer? ? ? ? ? ? - Poem by Maryam Khan

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 cousin of goat.

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A curser used profanity
A keyboard was a piano.

Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account
And if you had a 3 inch floppy
You hoped nobody found out.

Compress was something you did to the garbage
Not something you did to a file.
Log on was adding wood to the fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road.

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'll wish they were dead
