The Link Not Taken

I was wondering what Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” would look like if he were to write it today in an internet-soaked age?

So, I took the liberty of re-writing it…

 Enjoy!

I was wondering what Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” would look like if he were to write it today in an internet-soaked age?

So, I took the liberty of re-writing it…

 Enjoy! 

 

Two links diverged on a page,

And sorry I could not click both 

And be one visitor, long I stared

And looked down the URL as far as I could

To where it bent in the long tail.

 

Then clicked the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was black and wanted wear;

Though as for that passing there

Had ranked them really about the same, 

 

And both that morning equally lay

In ads no finger had tapped to black.

Oh, I buffered the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads to way,

I doubted if I should ever scroll back. 

 

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence;

Two links diverged on a page, and I –

I took the one less clicked by,

And that has made all the difference.

– Andy Murray
