The Internet gives a world view
You make a search and quickly view
All sorts of esoteric facts
No need the poor old brain to tax.
Encyclopedias, reference books
Lie dust-covered – no one looks
In erudite and revered tomes
With Internet now in our homes...
This knowledge revolution brings
It is true - a host of things
Within our ambit – we explore
From our desk top more and more.
But the World Wide Web has shadows too
Gremlins and terrorists get through
We knew too little, now too much
A price is paid to stay in touch!
