Encouraged by a comment from Ricky, I made an effort to write a children’s book. Here is my first attempt. It is in the form of an extended sonnet, keeping more or less with iambic pentameter (more pentameter, less iambic).
I noticed that a lot of children’s books are the ABCs of something. Most of the “something”s have already been used, except for that which is most important to the children of today – websites.
The Alphabet Book of URLs
A is for Amazon, they sell goods and bads
B is for Blogspot, opinions and tales
C is for Craigslist, all classified ads
D is for Dropbox, don’t clog up emails
E is for Ebay, the price might be right
F is for Facebook, waster of time
G is for Google, main search engine site
H is for Homestar Runner, cartoon sublime
I is for Instragram, ruin photos with filt’ring
J is for Jameco, electronics supplier
K is for Kickstarter, more funds it wilt bring
L is for Lycos, search engine old-timer
M is for Moniker, buy a domain name
N is for Netflix, watch films and shows
O is for Opera, browsers are not the same
P is for Priceline, solves travelling woes
Q is for QQ, who knows what they do?
R is for Reddit, vote on your favorite
S is for Snopes, if a story is true
T is for Twitter, short insights you’ll get
U is for Urban Spoon, meal option reducer
V is for Vimeo, simple film hosters
W is for WordPress, a blogging producer
X is for XKCD, web comics and posters
Y is for Yahoo, search, email, and news
Z is for Zillow, a new home you can choose
Now I know my TLDs,
Next time won’t you browse with me?
for I do not wish to seem as if I would terrify you by my letters.
