Which has the Upper-Hand? Your Computer, or You!?

Updated on June 7, 2011

Who's Programming Whom!?

Hal's Inside His Head!
Hal's Inside His Head!

They're Getting Too Big For Their Boot!!

A Spat With Hal, My Computer!
(A Poem)

Me "Computers,
Bah!
Computers
I personally hate
Computers.
Programmed robot brain
Grrr! They're just a pain
Computers."

Hal "Humans
Pooh!
Humans
They're just second-rate
Humans.
They've got gooey, fragile brains
Always griping about pains
He must have been insane, creating
Humans."

Me "Computers
Pah!
Computers
They spy on us night and day
Even checking on our pay
I rue the very day
They made
Computers."

Hal "Humans
Sheeeet!
Humans
They're romantic, what a bore
Then they're always waging war
Having babies (What a chore!)
(Tell me, who wants more?)
Humans."

Me "It's too late to rave and cuss
Now they've burned the abacus
What will tomorrow have for us
Worse than
Computers."

Hal "No, computers are the best
We just never need a rest...Hey!
DON'T TOUCH THAT SWITCH YOU PEST!!
HUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuumanssssss*&^%$£"."

      Hi cathylynne..."Poetry too" Poetry and what!?

      I was involved in poetry when younger and published an anthology. (Charged Particles) But don't even think of buying it, because the vanity press (Diggory and Rosalind Franklin) kept all the royalties on this and two other small books I wrote...Bob I burn when I still see them for sale in the book shops.
