A Techno-Nightmare

Grandma sneered at my computer in awe; Contempt did build and it stuck in her craw. Said it was the devil’s work, The new keys drove her berserk. She claimed they had to be against God’s law. “What do these things mean, page up and page down?” So she pressed “escape,” continued to frown All of my work had been lost And I was growing quite cross In my cussing, grandma started to drown “Why did you hit escape?” I had to ask. “Now I must begin anew this tough task.” She responded politely, “I hate this technology And wanted you to "escape" Satan’s grasp!” *For Natalie's "Talkin' Technology" contest

Excellent humor..Got a chuckle..Reads like winning material to me..Good luck..Thanks for the kind review of my work..I really could not taste the herbs in the chicken so much..I have a herb garden and I used fresh herbs..I think maybe that I did not use quite enough..The Lemon Thyme adds a great flavor also..Sara
