compact digital video
oh beauteous silvered disc!
what magical bytes and bits
will streaming laser light beguile
from within your mirrored platinum file?
your shiny encrypted face reflects
my tired one, and its defects
but mingled with colored rays;
a digital trove with rainbow glaze
to think what endless sights and sounds
lay beneath thy thin metallic bounds
pleasantly befuddles my monkey brain--
merely imagining serves to entertain
shall we boot, spin and play
or save your mysteries for another day?
I think it's best, and there's no risk
to you, my eternal compact disc!
