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.
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!
