The Computer Poem By Niyi Osundare

Fast as a hawk

Its eyes just as swift

To humankind the rarest gift

Here is a piece of wonder

That leaves the mouth agape

An awesome lot to ponder

A little tap on the mouse

Its working does arouse

Blinking and burning bright

And purring like a friendly puppy

It swallows all its floppy

Feeding fast on a diet of disks

That cut our daily risks

Ready helpmate for the human brain

Reducer of stress and strain

Left click, right click

It’s all done in a flick

As neat as a perfect trick

My busy fingers are dancing

The keyboard is singing
