My first true love, a technology poem
At the age of ten, I made a great friend
So was it a Boy, With a cool toy?
Or was it a sweet girl, Doing a pretty twirl?
None of the above, Was my first love
An Acorn Electron, To load my tapes on
So what it was so slow, The warmth of the glow
In front of the screen, Unreal like a dream
Creating the code, Switching the mode
Just 32K, In which to play
Computers don’t care, They’re just software
But that you can trust, Friendships can rust
Ones and zeroes, Digital heroes
It was my friend, Right until its end
