The first mobile computer
That I ever used
Was the size of a carry-on bag

'Twas a pleasure to lug!
Every bit as much fun
As a cinder block

With a keyboard (full-sized)
That snapped over the front
Protecting the wee CRT

A cute monochrome screen
With dimensions a lot like
My new one:

The device I call "phone"
(It's named after an app -
An uncommonly used one at that)

And its digital brain
Makes the one in that suitcase
Seem tiny

Today we think "mobile"
Means tablet or phone
But really when push comes to shove

Most computers are mobile
If you give it some thought
And exercise
                brawn ;-)
