My friend and colleague, TINA HACKER, tried to post a poem for this month’s Poetry Challenge. Alas, the gremlins ate it. She tried again at my request and I’m posting it here for her. Thank you, Tina!
Hacker’s My Name Used to be uncommon, so when it first appeared in newspapers, “Hackers Cause Computer Headaches,” I cut out the headline, posted it on my office walls. Soon had enough to post on everyone’s walls. HACKERS, the movie, turned the swell into an ocean. Never thought I’d be infamous, send emails people wouldn’t open. Might as well type SCAMMER on the subject line. Considered adding a disclaimer: I’m not a virus or a vampire sucking secrets from computers, just someone with a name as dreaded as an earthquake, bubonic plague, winter in Fargo. Crashing worlds if not today surely tomorrow. Now on Blu-ray. Tina Hacker Previously Published in Silver Birch Press
