#The Cookie Story

To misquote Margaret Thatcher

“These cookies are not for dunking”

Instead of filling us with calories

They can bloat the ad mans’ salaries.

       @

A digital cookie of the non-fat variety

Is text saved on your computer,

Collecting crumbs of information,

Tracking movements when online.

 @@

 It knows your name and where you live,

What gender you are, what you like,

No need to retype passwords,

This one smart cookie knows it all.

@@@

 This cool cookie predicts our needs,

Like looking for discounted cars,

Or those shoes with see-through plastic heels,

Tracking purchases and all ads clicked.

  @@@@

 So when you feel your computer reads you,

It´s just cookies feeding sites with data,

Predicting and anticipating future needs,

Customising user experience, and that’s all good.

   @@@@@

 But even cookies become exploited,

Shared and sold by companies to junk mailers,

Selling your private information to ad men,

Who send those interfering annoying ads.

   @@@@@@

Remember your movements can be tracked online.

So to remove “remarketing ads” and end their glory,

Regularly empty your cache and history holder,

And that´s the moral of the cookie story!
