Computers

by Dr. Seuss


If a packet

hits a pocket

on a socket

on a port,


and the bus

is interrupted

at a very

last resort,


and the access

of the memory

makes your floppy

disk abort,


then the socket

packet pocket

has a error

to report.




If your cursor

finds a menu

item followed

by a dash,


and the double

clicking icon

puts your window

in the trash


and your data

is corrupted

cuz the index

doesn't hash,


then your

situation's hopeles

and your system's

gonna crash.





If the label

on the cable

on the table

at your house,


says the network

is connected

to the button

on your mouse,


but your packets

want to tunnel

to another

protocol,


that's repeatedly

rejected

by the printer

down the hall,


and you screen

is all distorted

by the side effects

of gauss,



so your icons

in the window

are as wavy

as a souse,


then you may

as well reboot

and go out

with a bang,


cuz sure

as I'm a poet

you know its's

gonna hang!



When the copy

of your floppy's

getting sloppy

on the disk,


and the macro

code instructions

cause

unnecessary risk,


then you'll have

to flash the memory

and you'll want to

RAM the ROM,


Quickly

turn off

the computer

and be sure to

tell your Mom!
