‘It’s been a while,’ they all but cried
‘She’s been gone two months, has she not tried
To concoct the story of her new life?’
They of course, know not, she’s hit some strife.
Apple Mac stopped in its tracks
Grey screen of death – has held her back
On borrowed time she grabs a chance
To inform the crew of her latest dance.
The simple things are now not so fast
On this life on water – not like the past
Shopping Centres were ten minutes away
Now shopping trips take all day
So – computer problem, where do I go?
Known source down south via the post?
Or someone here, near or far;
Life’s not so easy without a car
So fear not, tale will come at last
Story begun and holding fast
A slight delay – please, not too much flack
Adventure bound – when computer back!
