National Poetry Day: The Computer Swallowed Grandma

THE COMPUTER SWALLOWED GRANDMA
By Valerie Waite, Derbyshire England

The computer swallowed grandma.
Yes, honestly its true.
She pressed 'control' and 'enter'
And disappeared from view.

It devoured her completely,
The thought just makes me squirm.
She must have caught a virus
Or been eaten by a worm.

I've searched through the recycle bin
And files of every kind;
I've even used the Internet,
But nothing did I find.

In desperation, I asked Jeeves
My searches to refine.
The reply from him was negative,
Not a thing was found 'online.'

So, if inside your 'Inbox,'
My Grandma you should see,
Please 'Copy', 'Scan' and 'Paste' her
And send her back to me!

I thought I'd share this little poem in honour of national poetry Day. Students really enjoyed an unusual start to ICT lessons.
