Data Loss…

My anti-virus is broken
My firewall is a joke.
It must be true I know,
Why else the errors?
Data loss is a pain
With no hope of restoration.

Can anything be done
To protect information?
There’s no back-up option.
Why is it, I wonder,
That old data survives
But newer is forgotten?

If only I could connect
To some new device,
To save it all in safety.
Alas, there’s no chance
To save all there is.
To protect all the knowledge.

The human brain is great
As long as it works,
While it doesn’t misfire.
With age and illness
All we can say is
Memory loss is inevitable.
