Remember when …

A computer was something on TV 
From a science fiction show, 
A window was something you had to clean 
And a ram was a cousin of a goat.

Meg was the name of a girlfriend 
And gig was your middle finger upright, 
Now they mean all different things 
And that really megabytes.

An application was for employment 
A program was a TV show 
A cursor used profanity 
A keyboard was a piano.

Memory was something you lost with age 
A CD was a bank account 
And if you had a 31Ž2 inch floppy 
You hoped nobody found out.

Compress was something you did with the garbage 
Not something you did to a file, 
And if you unzipped anything in public 
You’d be in jail for a while.

Log on was adding wood to a fire 

Hard drive was a long trip on the road 
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived 
And a backup happened to your commode.

Cut you did with a pocket knife 

Paste you did with glue 
A web was a spider’s home 
And a virus was the flu. [End Page 299]

I guess I will stick to my pad and paper 
And the memory in my head 
I hear nobody’s been killed in a computer crash 
But when it happens, they wish they were dead.
