We have an old computer,

Not linked to the Net (it’s neutered)…

On which she plays “Spider”*

While I watch beside her,

In cards I don’t want to be tutored!

Anyone who has seen has agreed

That typing is easier to read…

Instead of my script

My wife often quipped,

So I type poetry out of need.

On this computer I will process

What will be edited less…

Ideas ripe,

Dreams ready to pipe:

Rhymed and rhythmed nobleness!

–Jonathan Caswell

*Spider is a computerized card game.
