“Dreams of a Teenage Techie” (Viralai)

The future I seek
No way will be bleak
For me.

No longer the geek
I’ll be oh so chic
You’ll see.

The old apps I’ll tweak
Write programs that speak
To thee.

I’ll get my degree
Be “Super Trainee”
Can’t fail.

Commence fitness spree
Strong man I foresee
Not frail.

A-1 I will be
I’ll welcome the fee
To sail.

Success will prevail
I’ll weather the gale
Each week.

I’ll travel the trail
To the Holy Grail
And peak.

The heights I will scale
No one can curtail
“Tech Sheik.”

  10. This is a fun read – it made me smile! My (much younger) brother built his own computer when he was a little boy – it’s all second nature to the younguns these days! I’m a happy user and have a certain amount of understanding – and that’s it….:)

  11. I’m smiling. If I were young and in the market, I’d be going for the geeks!
