The addiction of a geek.

Do I have an addiction?
OK, I have got one.
It is the internet which
Gives both knowledge and fun.

Agreed it’s an addiction,
I can’t do without it.
But of this addiction I
Am not ashamed a bit.

Without the internet I
Would not be writing this.
To read me without e-mail,
Impossible it is.

I do spend late hours in night,
Surfing and e-mailing.
But I don’t think of that as
Too much of a failing.

So I admit that I have
Internet addiction.
But this addiction won’t cause
Mental dereliction.
