" On Line "

" On Line "
I want one of those computers
Superconductor duper super science fiction 
Like in the films you see
Where the female efficient voice
Tells me everything is working properly
Punch up my memory boost and she quips
“memory boost on line”
thermal nuclear blaster trouble spot ?
“on line”
and then without even questioning
she rattles through the anatomy and itinerary  
of my technological wizardry multi functional processor
and “double” no “quadruple” dual core

“chat with thousands of people at once…”
“on line”
“recording every piece of music ever made in the entire world…..
“on line”
“smashing and generally kicking the crap out of virus scanner….
“on line”
“Trojan disinfection and nasty dental torture of their authors……
“on line” 
“connecting to the internet for free…
“on line”
“eliminating all computer hijacker, adverts, worms and spybots and castrating their
authors now…on line”.   
“you are now ready to have a trouble free and relaxing experience with your computer and
the rest of the Internet….is now…………..on line”
And I will sit there like some Battlestar Galactica
Viper shinny suit as I surf the net
At twice the speed of light.
And there I’ll be fully downloaded, uploaded and completely free
Of Microsoft and its bubble pops
And net hang-ups and freezes
And ITCP’s ( What ever that is )

Gargling with information
The latest news and views
I will cruise
I will not surf
I will cruise
The electric highway

And maybe, just maybe
Have a trouble free
Conversation with someone I cannot see 
To clearly.

    Amazing. I want one of those too! lol That sounds like a super duper computer to me. Love the last lines. Cute, and fun, and deep. Your mind is a place to wind around in, for a long time, and not find a way out of. LoL. Love your friend, Christie
