Is Anyone There? – Romantic Poetry for Computers

Do you know what happens
When someone is fastened
To a computer chair?

Their face starts a-sagging
And lips start a-wagging
As if someone was there

It shows on the screen
Where others have been
As if it were really shared

Till they turn to video
They can continue to
Believe someone was there

Another recording
Sounds really boring
So it’s time to stare

Time for reading
Another e thing
Try not to care

It’s awful deceiving
What we’re believing
Are others really there
