Menzies building on the third floor,

SeniorNet behind a closed door,

Computers sit silent at the ready

Respond to the touch of hands so steady,

Pictures and messages scroll across the screen

A frightening experience when first seen,

Lists of instructions brief and clear

Help a little to disperse your fear,

Formats and Fonts old and new

Roman and Arial to mentions a few,

On your computer just for fun,

One finger typing a thing of the past

Your fear of learning aside you have cast,

Rectangles and circles you can draw

Accounts and expenditure on a disk

Details kept safe with no risk,

There are many more things you can do

To list them all would only bore you
