A Valentine Miss -- My Mate!

        So here I sit, in all my glory...
        Lend me an ear, and I'll tell you a story.
        I once had a wife--she was such a dear;
        Then came the Net, and it all disappeared!

        Now there she sits, for hours on end;
        "Don't care where I'm going--don't care where I've been."
        Could be three, or it could be nine;
        She really doesn't care, long as she's online.

        She gets out of work and rushes home;
        She comes in yelling at me, "Get off the phone!"
        Where is my hug? Where is my kiss?
        But she's at the computer--that's all she missed!

        Talking to cyberfriends, checking the mail--
        I might as well be in a cyberjail!
        My stomach's growling--it's so unfair;
        No clean dishes and no clean underwear!

        Drink me a Coke, stare at the walls;
        I'll pick at my teeth and roam the halls.
        Laughing and typing, what a sight I get to see.
        Can you believe she's there--when she could be with ME!
