I own an old Aptiva.

I use it every day.

But am I cyber literate?

NO! Not in anyway.

I’ll write a line of verse

(If present is my muse),

E-mail friends and family,

Read the latest news.

I keep a daily journal,

List books that I have read,

Names of old acquaintances,

The living and the dead.

But I wouldn’t know an iPod

From a thing to eat.

Blackberries, Kindles, iPads

Are mysteries dark and deep!

I’m falling far behind,

But don’t give a damn.

I don’t need to be au fait

With hard-drives, bytes, and RAM.

When my PC goes awry,

I call the kid next door.

He speaks to me in riddles,

But I soon compute once more.
