... like some ancient mariner...

... like some ancient mariner...

By PeterHunter

… like some ancient mariner…
no ship upon a painted ocean…
… but in my tiny office…
walls clad with mementos of a lifetime…
catalogue of memories, lost causes, faded ventures
… hopes, dreams and abandoned ideas

So it's come to what?
… now all I do… working this electronic thing…
… computer it's called…
a mere slave to a machine…
… copying all… my thoughts and memories…
… all now I have to give…

… this electronic albatross of mine…
slim, grey desktop…
… with that stubborn will
... all of its own…
