Cuter Than My Computer

By Joseph Jabbar

I've heard of something strange,
Beyond my daily experience,
An idea that could derange,
And topple you off of that fence.

I've been told of something called life,
And the importance of actually getting one,
I was told this by somebody's wife,
'With one life could be more fun.’

I admit that whilst at my computer,
I've had on occasion thought,
That a girlfriend might be more cuter,
Than this cruncher of one and naught.

But try as I might, I've never quite mastered,
Their language just fills me with fright,
So down to the pub and let's get plastered,
And go home and call it a night.
