Lol, well it's computer related (just) and yeah somewhere between cute and twee, but may be it'll make ya smile - the author is anonymous, unless anyone would like to own up to it!! 🙂

The computer's swallowed grandma
Yes' honestly' its true
She pressed 'control' and 'enter'
And disappeared from view.
Its devoured her completely
The thought just makes me squirm
Maybe she's caught a virus
Or been eaten by a worm.
I've searched through the recycle bin
And files of every kind
I've even used the internet
But nothing did I find.
In desperation I asked Jeeves
My searches to refine
The reply from him was negative
Not a thing was found 'online'.
So, if inside your 'In Box'
My Grandma you should see
Please 'Scan', 'Copy' and 'Paste' her
In an e-mail back to me
