Hiya Folks

                         Hiya Folks

Hiya folks, I’m here, not sure
For days I have been trying
To break the code of techno door
With which I have been vying 

I did quite well, at the start
I passed the log in stage
But then it seemed to fall apart
Not sure if its my age

All was going well with me
Till came to my profile
I filled and stabbed the submit key
But nothing would compile

It was time to use my brain
Was hard work I will admit
Several times I tried again
But just would not submit

I fired an email off to plead
To end my misery
Two days later, yes indeed
Reply was sent to me

It could be this, it might be that
No wiser was I now
Perplexed, confused, here I sat
Still wondering as to how

Another mail was swiftly sent
A screenshot they would need
With no idea what that meant
I grudgingly agreed

I asked a girl, who put me right
She showed me there and then
And then upon that very night
I sent it off to them

But I was bothered by the fact
That it turned out so small
I wondered how they would react
And was it use at all

So I was sitting here at wait
When itching fingers thought
I’d write a line or two though late
About that which I sought

I thought I’d be up on the screen
Then found it not to be
An obstacle was in between
The fault could still be me

It said to read the FAQs
So this I duly did
In hope that it would pay its dues
And of this pain me rid

Advised to ask the members I
If problems couldn’t sort
And on them thought I could rely
When they gave me their thought

But soon it was I realised
That this could not be done
I’d not be before your eyes
Till submit it had run     (Derrrr)

Another mail was returned
Which brought things to a halt
And from this I duly learned
It was my age at fault

And now this the ender
But I’ll blame technology
And I feel a proper member >>(only for the most subtle thinker) 
As I’m sure you would agree

    I remember reading and loving this very first poem of yours :) and it really caught my attention and showed me what a down-to-earth fella you are. Remember I told you that you should put a picture of yourself for your avatar... and then I told you it was still too far away, so you put a closer one... makes you more of a real person I think :) Was that really only six months ago? ahh I'm just nostalgic today for some reason.

    You were my very first commenter, shame you deled all your comments. I'm amazed you remember all that in such detail and I am a real person by the way lol. Great memory you have Becca. Yes, is only six months and you're nostalgic for the old days all ready :)

    I see technology hates you as well! Join the club of Electronics Enemies Anonymous... ha ha. This was sure zany and creative for a first post... I loved all the drama (though in all honesty if I was in the real situation I don't believe I would love it much then!).

    Richard, The New Poets of 2013, Congratulations in this contest. Hope to read more of your poems soon. Take Care*SKAT

    This was a clever way to deal with your techno-frustrations.....I must admit it takes a bit o navigating. I have already committed some 'soup-sins' by over-posting...not knowing I was jammming another page link. Here I was quietly playing and posting some poems while others were saying, Oh no! Not another one so we live and learn. Any way you seem to have tamed that old computer to your will. Have a smashing day, SuZ

    Hi Richard: I like your poem, but don't feel like the Lone Ranger. you are not alone. when i first came I had a lot of problems. Little by blittle I worked them out. Welcome to the Soup. Many blessings. Lucilla

    Hahaha, funny one, Richard. I knew somewhere in this world there had to be somebody more techno-challenged than I. I enjoyed reading through your poem twice. Nice work, my friend. :)

  1. Date: 3/9/2013 1:11:00 AM

    hey, so this is your first poem. and yes, I was the same way when I first came here too. It took me a month to really get a good hang of how things work here. If you keep trying and just experiment with different things you see here, you will learn a lot. Good luck and nice poem.
