life online

by damommza & sunovawot

I
my stories and my memories
are saved unto the cloud
I know them all by heart and
I can restore “password allowed”

the files have all transferred there
my books, the songs, downloads
they are completey safe as
you’ll never hack the code

I’ve tried to send my soul as well
but the bandwidth is too small
I’d also need to encrypt it
behind a firewall

If I want to monitor
my memory or my RAM
I’ll just be sure to delete
all that crappy spam

when my browser isn’t flaming
and I know it’s a screenshot
I’ll save my memories of you
as you’re not a computer bot

II
please note before you proceed
to move your life online
the rules you must comply with
and things will be just fine

no love or laughing permitted
while you are a guest in the cloud
no memories that might be disturbing
in fact no emotions allowed

III
so now that you are settled
your life’s upload is complete
make sure everything is backed-up
before someone hits “DELETE”

    This is our first poem with a me/you/me response! I had the last lines written long before I wrote the first, so I waited to see how you were going to end it and found there was still a space for the “DELETE” part…I guess if we could upload our minds to iCloud..we really would have to be sure there was no delete button..or we maintained a copy on an external hard drive somewhere! 😀

    • This one is mainly your work 😀

      But considering how companies were so quickly into patenting genes, I think I would be worried about some company trying to copyright a person, as well as accidental deletion 😀

        But you gave me the idea so technically, your input is what started it! I knew it was going to end up with the word “DELETE” and just wrote the poem backwards. 😀

        • Fair’s fair, I’ve grabbed my share of your ideas 😀

          And I often know how a poem is going to end, before I start it… 😀
