With a crack of mouse whip
my computer obediently
shuffles rectangles of data
up the screen
reorganizing itself in a fashion
I can only dream of
leaving me to wonder
which of us is truly master?

I love it when my computer (and e-mail systems) obeys my commands! This reminds me I'm the one supposed to be cracking the whip and they're here to serve me! Thanks for that.

lol your computer poems are always so amusing and thoughtful...although I would have to say you (or the person clicking away) are the master, these spyware ads sure are getting the best of me right now >:(

For sure! Has me wishing there was a 'mouse' for my mind.

My computer doesn't do what I need it to do half the time so I guess that answers that question! ha! :)
