I'm not honestly sure why I suddenly came up with the urge to write about this... such is the way my mind works. I use the internet a lot more than I used to, blogging, social networking, searching, helping son with homework, you name it I pretty much do it. I thought it would be fun to get Shakespeare's take on all things IT. One or two of the quotes I knew and you can guess where I got the other ones from can't you !!
Had the internet been around in Shakespeare's Day
Would the bard have taken to it?
Would it have been an improbable fiction,
Might he have scanned the browsers
And searched with bated breath;
Until he found a hit, a very palpable hit.
And away quickly to write it down
On parchment page with quill.
Or, do you think he'd struggle somewhat?
Feeling a blinking idiot!
Unable to master or see the point
Of social networking skills -
Maybe he'd message comically
And laugh oneself into stitches.
Which makes a change from LOL
Expletives being replaced with WTD
What the dickens! Perhaps?
Oh! would he see it as chaos is come again
Or there's method in the madness?
Would he blog his poetry
And tweet to let us know
When latest play being performed
Or include it as his status.
Might he set up a website for all to see
Oh! What would you do Will Shakespeare
Had the internet been with thee?
Enough of my musings now -
It's not the be-all and end-all.
Can't replace the wondrous thrill of books,
Or meeting people face to face.
But I'd like to think the bard succeeded
And 'IT' held an honoured place.
