Mystery Revelation At Outer Border Of Internet Cyberspace - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

I was strolling through my computer one day
lost in rapid random internet explorations
when all at once I spied a challenge bold invite

'CLICK THIS TO SEE THE END
OR THE OUTER BORDER
OF THE INTERNET OR

CYBERSPHERE.

CAUTION
AS IT MAY
CAUSE TRAUMA.'

at www.wwwdotcom

being a bit of a fab fool Forest Gump fan
knowing life is like a box of chocolates
but having previously my last box eaten

I thoughlessly strolled on in
amazed to find no box of chocolates
therefore this was not real life...

Sherlock Homes said 'of course Watson',
having also just found their exploration way in
this is cyberspace fabled futuristic internet...

observe blank two dimension jigsaw pattern
background blank empty white not filled in
blocking any all other options another horizon

no discernable colour shapes in jigsaw pattern
life is like a jigsaw puzzle lacking instruction guides
we must sign making meaning superimpose rules

this is the end of the road God will shortly deliver signs
impart a cosmic message for electric humanity to ponder
not written in stone but bytes computer internet codes

this is after all
THE END
THE OUTER BORDER

OF THE INTERNET
OR CYBERSPHERE
an ever-growing

collection
of free online
jigsaw puzzles

and the sign said

'Attention:

You have reached the very last page of the Internet.

We hope you have enjoyed your browsing.

Now turn off your computer and go outside.'

the critics
of finger thumb
only exercises

were correct

we were definitely designed
to be interactive work animals
requiring outdoor exercises

alas

I cannot go outside
a cold wind gust blows outside
a word wind hurricane mind blows inside

I am screen frozen
