Another One From The Dueling Poets They Are Back!

MY E-MAIL WENT WHERE?
I sent an E-mail into space,
It disappeared without a trace.

I wondered where my E-mail went,
So, I called my ISP to vent.

They asked me if it was hyper-text?
"No," I said, "But I'm hyper-vexed."

Suppose it was sent overseas?
It may have gone to the Chinese.

Did a German grab its tail?
"Guten Morgen! Sie gott mail!"

Did I type the address wrong?
Was it com.dot ... or dot.com?

Since my mail did not arrive,
Do you suppose it's still alive?

Is it fighting for a place,
On the Avenue of Space?

I shot a thought into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where,
For who knows the Internet so well,
That they can fathom the flight of E-mail?

HMMMMM, A STRAY E-MAIL

As I was plodding down the trail,

I stumbled upon this stray E-mail.

!

I knew not from where it came,

So I could not return to same.

!

I added verses to the song,

And sent that E-mail right along.

!

I sent it into cyber space,

Again it left without a trace.

!

And now I sit alone and ponder,

Who found that E-mail way out yonder.

!

Can they read my hasty scrawl,

Or can they even read at all.

!

Will they think I've lost my mind,

Or will they marvel at their find.

!

I really hope that they will see,

They need to set that E-mail free.

!

Maybe add a verse or two,

Then send that E-mail right on through.
