I've got Windows and Linux in my pocket, sizing up each other's worth.
Neither one'll do me any good here. I use them only to surf.
The palm trees look a little bit like dandelions from up here.
My palm-top computer's got a Ricochet modem card, and stock quotes appear.
I am ballooning here, far above the Santa Monica Pier.
Filled the basket with techie gear. LCDs lit from the rear.
Listen to the modem shriek. Thirty kbaud when the signal's weak.
I've been such a hopeless geek all of my life!
Roller-bladers with their t-shirts off are lining the paved-over earth.
I click upon a dark blue anchor. Time to surf, time to surf.
No matter where it is I wander, I know that a banner ad will be on top.
I don't like them, but I still read them. It's too hard to stop.
Down there, I see the sun bathers drowsin', drowsin'.
The skin cancer pages say they're better off safe inside.
Back East, the tech sector's rousin'.
I make thousands, trading from the sky!
Look at that beautiful Mexican boy, showing off on his dorm room cam.
"Mira, mira!" he types as he points it, not caring who or where I am.
Look at this blue sky I'm drifting through, so perfect in the summertime!
What could be better than that? Except for maybe being online.
