On arriving, I said, “What the heck!
What a terrible bicycle wreck!
I’ve a cable that size.
You can do MRI’s.
Who’s the first patient in?” “It’s the tech.”
It’s not prudent, I’m saying today.
Punching DSDD’s not the way.
You are running the risk
That by changing a disk
That our GI’s become DOA.
I was doing an app install which
Had encountered a bad printing glitch.
It is so hard to cope
When some think I’m a dope
When my problems are caused by a switch.
Now, what did you really think I was going to use as a rhyme here?
After two weeks of saying, “You’re it!”
There’s a time slot our schedules fit.
I will fix your device
If you take my advice:
With no laptop, I can not do anything.
“This darn mouse won't work! It’s so insane!
It keeps bouncing!” I heard him complain.
But his mouse pad? Alas,
It’s a clear piece of glass,
Which to use with a mouse is a pane.
