Over the keyboard and through the Net

To Grandmother’s blog we go;

With fingers we trace our path through space

And dodge the spam and porno.

 

Over the keyboard and through the Net

To see Thanksgiving fare;

We’re wanting to read our Nana’s new feed

On what she will prepare.

 

Over the keyboard and through the Net

We long to see that she

Is going to cook by Paula Deen’s book

And give us food so  yum-my.

 

Over the keyboard and through the Net

We open up the blog

“I’ve dissed Ms.  Deen for food more green -

No bird, no cow, no hog.”

 

Over the keyboard and through the Net

We send her our reply:

“We’d better eat here, but please don’t fear -

We’ll pay for you to fly.”

 

Over the keyboard and through the Net

Our Nana, she did state,

“Am happy to say I’ll pay my way :

You’ve stepped up to the plate!”
