When Lilian gave me my first computer
I was quite pleased and quite proud
Though convinced in minutes
I'd bugger it up
and set off a small mushroom cloud.
So sure I would at least
set off world war three
if I pressed button A
when it should have been B,
but she persevered
and got me a dongle,
so I could look at something called 3.
Well my progress I tell you
it knew no bounds,
and my trepidations were soon all gone.
and within mere weeks
without help from the wife,
I could just about turn the thing on.
Then I joined a thing called Ebay
where they sell stuff if you've got the price,
I only joined cos I'm from Yorkshire
and I thought Ebay?, Eeh bye eck, thats nice.
Bye the time I could type with two fingers
I looked at a thing called Facebook,
By crikey they have to be joking,
Don't believe me? just give it a look.
Then I finally found this Forum, blog thing,
full of poor old buggers like me.
What most of us have in common,
is an ailment called C.O.P.D
We can talk to each,
and ask for advice
about medicine and Doctors and things,
and then on a completely different tack,
we can tell of what makes our hearts sing.
We don't always see things eye to eye,
and what makes one person laugh
may just make another one cry.
It really is a great forum,
I know that I really do need it.
And if I see something that I do not agree with,
I know now to simply not read it.
So through this computer
I can have my say,
converse with my new friends, sometimes laugh
And if by now I ain't caused Armageddon,
I say enjoy life,
your a long time a dead'un.
