Whatta Bozo



When it comes to modern technology The word “bozo” suits me to a “T” I quiver and shake and tremble all over When my computer asks questions of me! Think to myself “If you're so damn smart Why are you asking this old guy? I'm back in the days of peck-peck-peck On my typewriter listening to hi-fi!” I'm at an age when the brain doesn't work The way it did way back when Wait a minute, I'm not sure this old brain Was that brilliant even back then! Some of us guys were born to be techies I'm just happy being real simple Totally content in my own little world All the girls just love my dimples! I may be a bozo but I'm a happy bozo Not familiar with that techie talk Made it this far without hurting my brain Technology's a total crock! © Jack Ellison 2013

    You have a brain where age doesn't matter. Your wit and humor, to me would appeal to a variety of audiences. I myself have my pen, and notebooks, journals, and whatever else they made, "especially for writing" lol, but it's so much easier on the computer, even on the phone. Great work again Jack.

    For my remaining years, however many they are, I will continue having a ball and pass on with a great big grin on my face! LOL

    Funny! That's what my wife Cathie calls herself "bozo-ette" sometimes if she spills something in the kitchen but I have other names for her! LOL Glad you could identify with it but I'm not as computer illiterate as I make out to be! Hugs, Jack xoxox

    They probably help you out free of charge eh but what about me? Would I have to pay for their flight to Canada? Big hugs to you... a manly handshake for Mike... Cathie's a hugger so she would definitely hug both of you!

    It's opened up a whole new world! You're right, we would never have met, otherwise. Remember the dark ages... LOL!

    My dear Jack, This world was made possible by guys like you!To be technophobic in no way means you cannot be euphoric! If you brain doesn’t understand technology you might try another field named theology. Another good one Jack ! Thank you! Excellent!

    I actually am more into technology than this poem suggests. And if I do have a problem I can't solve, I have a techie son who always has the answer! Yee haw!
