Silver Surfers who’ve been feeling overwhelmed by URL’s and ISP’s
float away gently from their long-suffering lounge libraries

Wavering some, they hover around the entranceway,
discussing among themselves, the taming of their lap dancers

‘Mickey the sticky mouse’, and those candied-licks of memory sticks
The ‘electrickery’ of E-mail, online cooking, and, lest we forget...the saga of booking holidays

The fear of obsolescence fills their silvery heads, unable to descend where once children freely played
Yes, a child’s keen eyes could see everywhere, some even attached themselves to Goldilocks and glossy books of rhyme

But now, they sit and watch a monitor’s shiny Windows as their heads turn to silver
Hmm, wait just a minute...didn’t I see some of that silver gliding through the tines of my comb?

...I'm feeling really dumb. It's okay to agree. I swear, I thought it was water!

...just bein' Bluesy

Bluesy,
I do so enjoy your sense of humor. Your style has grown on me like spots on sun damaged skin. ~L

They call this progress...But I tend to think we lose some of those good old fashioned values in the name of it ~ Enjoyed Bluesy
