The Joys of a Technophobe

The Joys of a Technophobe


I have some difficulty with computers

as do many parents with their daughters

A technophobe is what I am

but really this is a bit of a sham

Although I struggle with most devices

I appreciate the fullest of advances

Sitting before my home computer

there is a world for me to seek after

At the press of a key I am in a Concert Hall

a few minutes later watching basket ball

I speak daily with many I have never met 

and all from before my home computer set

I learn new languages and various skills

without having to pay any of the bills

I keep a check on my Bank Acoount

which lets me know the exact amount

I am kept fully abreast of the news

and upon the many comments I do muse

I am learning to play the piano

and now on my second course of italiano

I discover something new each day

and hardly a cent do I have to pay

Books gather dust on the shelves

as I learn the difference between gnomes and elves

I sit and watch the last night of the proms

and hear about the latest bombs

I hardly have to stir myself to make

even a cup of tea and some cake

I remain a hopeless technophobe

but do enjoy the world to probe
