Are we computers?

Are we computers?
I learned a new word this week,
The meaning of which I had to seek.
Paraclete is the word,
Of which I’d never heard.
I looked it up, on my computer,
A green bird it said, with a big hooter.
Predictive text, had changed the letters
I tried again, hoping for better.
This time, success, I’d found what it meant
Counsellor, Advocate, that Jesus sent.
I typed the word out, it went red on my screen
The computer did not know what the word means.
I reflected on this, and found it poetic
That a thing of this world, just wouldn’t get it,
Because the Comforter - when you think of it - is in essence

In place of Jesus physically, His spiritual presence
