Silly Poems and Rhymes # 26

The computer’s swallowed grandma.
No, honestly, it’s true!
She pressed ‘control’ and ‘enter’,
And then disappeared from view.


It devoured her completely,
The thought just makes me squirm.
Perhaps she’s 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 ‘In Box’,
My grandma you should see.
Please ‘scan’, ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ her,
And send her back to me.
