Our friend Cindy encouraged me to post these few words as a feeble attempt at poetry. She posted a picture of a young woman with her head laying on her lap top keyboard above a poem that included a reference to “undo.” Here is a paraphrase of what I typed as a comment with the context provided above the poem.
Cindy, pairing your poem with the first picture is marvelous. “Undo won’t do the trick.” That is a terrific line that would have been unheard of forty years ago. It is the most magical button or icon ever invented – undo. So, when it does not do the trick, we are screwed. I am sure many a bad marriage would love the “undo” button. Of course, this would be passed the annulment period, which is a nice invention in its own right.
So, with this in mind, here is my feeble attempt:
“I wish my love for you remained
I wish I had not left my old job
I wish I had not given the Nigerian prince money
I wish I had not clicked on that link
Oops, undo is not working.
If you like the format, please offer some “undos” of your own.
