Poem: JabberWiki 

‘Twas blackberry, and the texty tweets
Did leech and seed in the infosphere:
All munge were the friending freaks,
And the blogblogs hid in fear.

Beware the JabberWiki, my son!
The wrists that flip, the fingers that flutter!
Beware the rootkit worms, and shun
The google viral sputter

He drank his coffee and poked the wall:
Long time the spindling snivitz did reboot
So rested by the server sprawl,
And slouched a while to recoup

And wireless, he streamed
In a Cyberdelic glow
The JabberWiki waxed the web
And braindumped to and fro

One two! and Redyellowblue
The pixels went out with a click and a crash
He left it dead and with his pen
The library he did dash

‘And hast thou slain the Jabberwiki?
Come back to social grace
To myths and dreams before the screen
When humans were not replaced

‘Twas blackberry, and the texty tweets
Did leech and seed in the infosphere:
All munge were the friending freaks,
And the blogblogs lived in fear.
