    life before computers

    An application was for employment
    A program was a TV show
    A cursor used profanity
    And a keyboard was on a piano!



    Memory was something that you lost with age
    And a CD was a bank account
    And if you had a corrupted disk
    It would hurt when you found out!



    Compress was what you did to garbage
    Not something you did to a file
    And if you unzipped anything in public
    You'd be in jail for a while!



    Log on was adding wood to a fire
    A hard drive was a trip on the road
    A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
    And a backup happened to the commode!



    Cutting, you did with a pocket knife,
    Pasting, you did with glue.
    The Web was where a spider lived
    And a virus was the flu!
