Life Before Computers

An application was for employment

A program was a TV show

A cursor used profanity

A keyboard was a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age A CD was a bank account

And if you had a 3 1/2 inch floppy you hoped nobody found out!

Compress was something you did to garbage Not something you did to a file

And if you unzipped anything in public

You’d be in jail for awhile!

Log on was adding wood to a fire

Hard drive was a long trip on the road

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut – you did with a pocket knife

Paste you did with glue

A web was a spider’s home

And a virus was the flu!

I guess I’ll stick to my pad and paper

And the memory in my head

I hear nobody’s been killed in a computer crash But when it happens they wish they were dead!
