    such wonderful technology the internet brings
    allowing us to share so many things
    our joy and our laughter, our sadness and tears
    our happiness, worries and even our fears
    even though we've not met, we'll defend and protect
    stand up for and fight for ... our friends on the net

    as big as it is, it remains very small
    as if you were only right down the hall
    my Sister, i see you in that skin tight black dress
    got me want'n ta hate as you continue to stress
    all the Brothers that's look'n and smiling at you
    as i whisper hey Sis does that come in red too?

    the web is so tight, we can hang out all night
    reading poems, sharing chat
    talk'n 'bout this ... talk'n 'bout that
    my Brother, i hear you as you shoot me that line
    trying to run that game, trying to blow my mind
    it's all good though, this mind needs to be blown
    it's been 99 years and that's way too long

    i'm really just teasing but you know i'm for real
    this internet thing has so much appeal
    thanking God right now as I do always
    that this technology is more than a phase
    allowing me to touch and be touched by you
    Sisters and Brothers i never knew

    In agreeance with the fam, with me being the oldest I wished I'd had an older sibling. Seems I found more that I could ever have wished for!! I love sharing with all of you and I also pray that this internet thing isn't just a phase.
