Simply Sophisticated
By Donna M. Monnig

Such a simple thing, no hard drive, no screen,
No software to update, no battery required,
No need for anti-virus; a hacker’s worst dream,
No binary numbers, no codes, nothing wired.
It can’t be forgotten, out of sight out of mind,
It can’t be deleted or erased from existence.
It stands on its own, it has a solid spine,
Yet, the Internet has caused much resistance,
But books are the Master, not the Apprentice.
