SEARCH ENGINE INTRIGUE

SEARCH ENGINE INTRIGUE

A certain computer search engine*,
It could be all–I don’t know—
Has a pre-set marital status
That other users can be shown.

It pre-set me as “single”,
Although married now twenty-four years…
I got scads of lonely heart women
Stacked up in my E-mail by tiers!

It didn’t matter when I changed it
To “married”…they descended in flights…
Got out of there quick as I could,
Before getting caught in cat fights!

—Jonathan Caswell

*Search engine unnamed by author’s choice—they must have made a lot of revenue that way!
