Before the internet ......

Before the internet was thunk
I'd grab my kids and dance.
I'd stop to change a diaper that stunk
Quiet the rowdies with just a glance.

Before the internet was the rage
I'd take walks with other moms.
I'd read a book, page by page,
And look quite good in thongs.

Before the internet was hot
I'd sleep at night with hubby.
I'd take the time to clean up snot
and hands and faces that were grubby.

Before the internet was mine
I'd talk and laugh with friends.
I was lookin' good and feelin' fine
And was quite proud of my rear end.

Before the internet was my life
I'd go spinning and lifting weights.
I was a playful mom and awesome wife
And it was good. No.  It was great!

But alas I love the internet
And love to blog so dearly.
Wash the floor? Why? Just get it wet
And dusting is done yearly.

I used to have to leave my home,
To do banking, pay the bills.
Now from my desk, the stores I roam
Develop pictures, legalize wills.

Why play with kids, they're doing fine.
Where are they now? Who knows.
All is quiet, I hear no whine,
But their lack of parenting shows.

But that's okay, blog friends will say,
For we all have each other.
We give support in our own way,
Laugh and cry with one another.

Since the internet was born,
I've developed special friendships.
Although from some I feel the scorn
I really do believe this.

And yes I know that Mama Kat
Could really be a man.
But, see, I'm totally okay with that,
I'm definitely still a fan.

So that's my life before and aft
The computer was my centre.
And blogging is my art, my craft,
The margarita in my blender.

So come on over, meet the crew
We'll have a drink, on me.
Kat's kids will make the stew,
And we'll make blogging history.

Ronda's Rants said...

You are so cute!!! I hope you not a man! Too funny!

Ronda's Rants said...

I meant... you're not a man!

wy-not said...

Hahhahahaha. That's awesome. And if YOU are a man, it means you've had some serious reconstructive surgery without telling your mama.

Stu Pidasso said...

WHOA, Mama Kat a man?!?!? Never even occured to me that it might be a possibility. But, then these days we do have cops posing as preteens and such (and that's just the good guys!!). So, is it possible that the internet is the "new idiot box"?? I guess it depends on the user, as the internet is much more interactive; or, stupid is as stupid does. And I posted late on your previous post, it was just too interesting. GB {God bless!!}

Melissa said...

This is too cute.... I love the "where are the kids" line... that's great!!

Anonymous said...

ooooohhhhhhh...........SO TRUE.

this is well written:-)

Claremont First Ward said...

I wonder how Kat is going to feel about her debut as a man? :)

This was a fun way to tell what has changed since the Internet. I haven't read anything in awhile that had me laughing, thinking it was so clever, feeling bad and then not being able to put into words my thoughts.

You'll never hear scorn from me. The Internet is insiduous and I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love it and can't live without it, but I wonder if I'd be a much better person without it...

Rhonda said...

I had LOTS of fun with this one. AND we all know, seriously, that our pretty, attention seeking poodle is no man, but, hey, who REALLY knows for sure! lol

Los said...

Look at you - you made an awesome poem about the internet! You did a great job, by the way ... even though the lack of parenting part was a little sad.

Casey's trio said...

Cracking up over Kat being a man! She will LOVE that, I'm sure!
Love your poetic skills:)

Jen said...

jori-o said...

Michelle said...

amelia bedelia said...
