Don't lose it!







It happens every now and then
At times when I pick up my pen
And let my thoughts most freely roam
Intent on writing out a poem.

Once I've written twenty lines
And run into a few land mines
My screen goes blank. I'm at a loss
I've found a bridge I can not cross.

It seems as though my hard drive balks
I'm at a loss. I'm in a box.
My hardware's out to get my goat.
I should have backed up what I wrote.

Backup, backup, backup,
Backup, backup, backup.

LOL All who write can attest to finding themselves in this situation. Question is, can they pen it in such humorous lines, as you have here? Doubt it - well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, and welcome back, Karla.
