Changing the date

Changing the date

I was pressing the page down button on
my computer to change the year from
two thousand to two thousand and
fourteen.

It’s amazing how
in those fourteen keystrokes
which took about five seconds to do

I went through the twin towers, the Iraq
war, the financial crash, London twenty
twelve and the death of Nelson Mandela.

If it was only as easy
to use the delete key
and erase some of them.
