Internet Heaven

 Internet Heaven

If I were ruler of the Net,
some things would change, it’s safe to bet.
On this Interweb so newly born,
there’d be no violence nor porn.
Microsoft would set Skype free
to return to how it used to be.
Literally everywhere
there would be internet to share.
Free  Wifi would be universal–
so simple we’d need no rehearsal
to sign on, forward, send, receive.
The exception?  Those set to deceive–
scammers sent to Internet Hells
with no computers in their cells.
And this is how our world would be
if you chose to vote for me
to set things right in cyberspace–
cut down the bother, increase the pace.
But now my list seems to be done,
I find that I have jumped the gun,
for though I’d love them to come true,
I find I have too much to do.
So all these changes go on the shelf
unless you do them for yourself!

The Prompt: New Internet Order–All the world’s countries have decided that the Internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net — do you accept? If so, what will your platform be?

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
