The poem was composed by Saya U Moe Aung (Tekkatho Moe War) after he visited a Computer Center in Singapore.
The following is a loose rendering.
to select at will, computers [galore]
encircle [me], obey my command
in an AC room, touch keypad
where finger tips lie, [work] and rest
somewhere in a foreign land
welcome data — texts, messages, numbers
with open arms. Fabulous memory
store forever, retrieve [compute & display]
Deep within my heart
stored & preserved, [notable] events of my life
love, hate, loss, gain [joy, pain]
assessed & archived — in my heart’s computer.
Shaking, pushing, … to close it’s door
would be in vain. My dear beloved
do you think I can ever forget?
