Internet Kobold

What hides in the internet

Tangling code

Sending error messages

Down pixelated roads,

What haunts the ethernet

Bogging down speed

Gobbling MB

Fertilizing ads thick as weeds,

What stirs the chaos

With inconsistent errors

Clicks that fail, or don’t

The jumbled screen of terror,

What rides the loading circle

Round and round

An ouroboros of insanity

That patience drowned,

What slips through every firewall

Tip-taps on every keyboard

Spooks believers and skeptics alike?

The Internet Kobold.
