Poetic License: ‘E-mail from Emily Em —’

Please don’t forward this E-mail

Or click reply to me –

The screens are blank as zero

Out here in Eternity –

The bits and words of what

We always thought we were

Unsaved forever

In Nobody’s processor –

Though parts of us might lurk

To fill a final hour

The World- Wide- Wolf of Web

Its last bit will devour –

Downloading and uploading

Our tiny time on Earth

Till glitch or fatal exception

Blanks out what we were worth –

Please don’t forward this E-mail –
