Not Found - A Poem


One upon a midnight deary,

While I surfed, weak and weary,

Over many strange and spurious site of countless lore.

While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark,

Suddenly there came a warning,

And my heart was filled with mourning,

Mourning for my dear amour.


'Tis not possible!, I pleaded,

But my browser, so conceited,

Remained blank, I then repeated,

Just a blank and nothing more.


With a scream, I was defeated,

For my cookies were deleted,

So I begged, no longer seated,

Give me back my sweet literary store!


Then, in answer to my query,

Through the net I loved so dearly,

Came its answer, dark and dreary:

Quoth the server, 404
