   Say what, my computer

Locked within a vacant stare,
An endless stream of data.
Questions forming everywhere,
But does it really matter?

Seems to me a senseless slate,
Accumulating data.
An equally senseless fate,
For does it really matter?

We are a link between, betwixt,
The former, latter and the batter,
Between, betwixt or present mix,
It really does not matter.

So I'll genuflect with hat in doff,
Have one more beer and then take off.
My tee time is for eight today and
They will not wait if I delay.

Don't be long! We need to discuss this poem!
What does it all mean?

From your poem I can relate,
do you have Windows 98?
If you do, just grab that beer,
And you won't have to leave us here.
Just click on "games" and then you're off,
Tee time's anytime with Microsoft golf.

Sy,
Guess there's nothing between the line
There'e no use for my fretting
I myself am alergic to numbers
So I'm undoing my forgetting
I've become quite a "computer whiz"
A title I have earned
I bury facts and figures
To the point of no return
For although I'm kind of organized
I don't know quite how this can be
Why those important files of data
Just keep eluding me
So you see, it doesn't matter
I enter data twixt and tween
And I never have to worry
For it will never again be seen
So your twixation for data entry
Is unfounded, don't you see
You'll never have to look at it again
If you file it like me!
I loved the second to last verse!
Love ya,
Liz

To all the wonderful people above
This poem is not a matter of love.
It is a matter of a mind in scatter.
But it does not really matter.
Thank you all for the wonderful response.
Liz,
Had a busy day not much time for the computer
I'll write you an Email as soon as I can.
Love ya
Sy
