Ode To T. E. Stockwell

I heart T.E. Stockwell
For he and his hath put me back
On the straight and narrow.
The wide and the fast track.
Where the band is broad and the A.D.S.L. impresseth.

Thou must have haddeth no clue
Eighty years ago
That diversification would be the saviour
Of your ailing supermarket, Tesco.
Yet it were and your speedy-yet-affordable internet package doth rock.

(With apologies to E.J. Thribb.)

Farewell, then
Dialup.
You were slow and annoying
Like Emile Heskey
Or the bloke in front of me
In the street
Today.

Farewell then
to the Norfolk, Virginia
who will not understand
Thribb
and will wonder
whether this blog has
become too
English.
