Seamus Harrington


Free downloads! (They’ve) 

altered my application

activated my archives

booted my browser

buried my broadband

book-marked my bits  

connected my console


captured my cartridge

clicked on my cookies

commandeered my curser

dropped down my devices

delved in my downloads

documented my data


dragged out my driver

displayed my desktop

erased my errata

encrypted my emails

fancied my favourites

fumbled my floppy


fragmented my fonts

fire walled my folders

gorged on my gigabytes

grouped up my game ports

hijacked my hardware

hacked at my hyperlink


hung out my homepage

hosted my hard drive

inserted my icon

interrupted my intranet

jellied my java

jumpered my jack-plug


keystroked my kernel

kneaded my knick-knacks

logged on my laptop

labelled my language

massaged my poor mouse

merged with my modem


minimised my monitor

muddled my memory

memorised my moniker

negated my network

networked my nonsense

opened my outputs


outsourced my options

plagiarised my process

programmed my printer

punctured my popups

partitioned my password

queried my qwerty


questioned my query

quoted my quandary                    

raided my right-click

recycled my registry

selected my software

sampled my startup


serviced my smartdrive

scheduled my scanner

sentenced my shortcuts

trespassed my trackball

trojaned my toolbar

uncovered my uploads


underlined my undo

violated my version

vetoed my vectors

vented my volumes

wormed in my window

winkled my wizard


x-rated my excerpts

yawned at my yarns

zeroed my zip-drive.



Seamus Harrington has had prizewinning poems published in the UK, the US and in Ireland. He has read his verse in Lake Orta, in Strokestown and in France, and contributed also to the Radio Programme “Seascapes.” He has a piece accepted by the Caird Library at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. One of his poems was highly recommended in the Gregory O’Donoghue Poetry Competition.

(He believes the muse frequents lighthouses, especially at night.)
