Ode to the Computer Keyboard

Ode to the Computer Keyboard By Elton Camp It was on a manual typewriter that I learned to key The keyboard’s function was obvious as could be A computer keyboard, to me, isn’t the same way For what some of the key do, I can’t possibly say About half I comprehend of keys called F1 to F12 Into ESC, Scroll Lock, Pause, Break I don’t delve Perhaps they do all kinds of absolutely great stuff But for an old man like me, they are way too tough ESC stands for “Escape” said the computer geek If it escapes, then I guess he would have to seek If I should see this useless key trying to get away I’d just say, “It’s goodbye and good riddance today.”
