On Line Dating - Poem by Gerard Heathcote

We met in cyberspace
Can this be a disgrace
Computers filled with numbers
To find a mate for our slumbers
No crowded room for seeking eyes to meet
Deny us the thrill of that missing beat

Bits and bytes and coloured pixels
Mouse click by in argos style
Case she's there to make us smile
Modelled in our mind is perfect kind
Rarely found in life's usual fray
What makes us think she's here today

    This is not a well designed poem, nor is it well written.
    Both the rhythm and rhyme are off. Needless to say, it makes this a poor read.
    There are other things, but those are the big ones.

    There is no disgrace if you meet by cyberspace.
    Today its to hectic and like minds have no other way
    To find and bind a union
