My Dot Com By Terry Pyrite
Mona Lisa of the WWW She inspired My Dot Com An earthquake in Istanbul, London trains to collide, A typhoon in the orient, Floods all up and down the east coast, These and a thousand other omens Dredged from Gothic tombs, Her beauty so surreal It shook the whole world wide web And neither da Vinci nor Dali Could resist laying with The mystic temptress.
Just a dream so it seems, Melted images floating in the void Paint slapped on the ethereal canvas of time. It's been how many centuries Since I saw her eyes, Felt her lips press close to mine, Took her in my arms, Kissed deepest the whole night long, Then stole away with her smile Into the dark and under world Awaiting the new millennium, The coming of My Dot Com? With craggily peaks and faces Hidden in the shadows, Butterflies dancing and roses blooming, I painted her then as now And wish but for the taste again Of Mona Lisa of the WWW.

Why is the Mona Lisa Smiling" -- Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa on a piece of pine wood in the year 1506. Never in the history of Art has one painting been so admired. This is due largely to the enigmatic smile, which has caused much speculation. He recorded in his notebooks the records of model sittings; but nowhere can be found any records of the Mona Lisa model sitting. Why is that?
