It’s the problem that programmers dread:
“Did you take my deck?” “Not I,” they said.
What would be real good?
It’s a keypunch that would
Throw that veep out the window instead.
I remarked to a few of my aides,
“It’s a problem that’s part of the trade.
‘Post-it notes can be sloppy.
Today it’s a floppy,
Last week it was stuck in a RAID.”
This one tape drive had us in a bind.
When we opened it, what did we find?
Tape that’s like dental floss.
That’s for use for a boss
Who has got a severe one-track mind.
Though it’s keyed in by keypunching pros,
There’s a problem that everyone knows.
Why’s the keypuncher screwed?
It’s her punch with the ‘tude.
It thinks, “Whoops! Out the window it goes!”
Said the new IT PHB, “Dang!
This darned printer does nothing but hang!”
A petite UPS
Was his remedy guess.
Like a show, it went out with a bang.
