A Poem by William Arthur

Microsoft Office 1:1-4

Google Docs can literally f**k off. 
In the beginning was Word, 
and the Word was with Word, 
and the Word was Word.
The same was in the beginning with Word.
All things were made by Word; 
and without Word was not any thing made 
that was made
and everything Word made was compatible,
because everything was made in Word.

Brilliant. Nothing more to say.

Hi William,

Really laughing at this one. Love the opening: "In the beginning was Word, / and Word was with Word". Yes, I guess we have to deify Word. It is the one and true God. In the beginning, I worshiped other Gods that I liked much better. But Word defeated them all and now they are gone (mostly). We still worship them in private sometimes when we can get away with it, but we don't do it in publish because the reaction is always: "You used what? Are you kidding me? Are you crazy? Now we'll have to translate it into Word!"

Best regards,

Now I feel like someone who has anciet knowledge since I used (daily) the first word processor - yes - even before Word - which was which Wordstar - and on a green screen.
I am the keeper of the knowledge - wow!
Some people are born great but others have greatness thrust upon them.
great fun William A.
cool my friend ;p

I'm writing in Evernote. Do you realize in 30 years the kids won't have any idea what you are talking about? Meanwhile, it's a fun poem.

A good play on Biblical symbolism (save ahem.. the censored cussing :)
