I love this. I thought it was a hoot and you had me smiling throughout. Your rhymes were a delight and the words just flowed off the page. I can so totally relate to the MC as I'm certain these wretched machines have conspired with glass repairman for if not for my husband, the computer geek, I'd be tossing this dastardly thing out the window! Splendid bit of poetry. :)

I think we can all relate to those words. A good poem.

Oh, this is great! It reminds me of the time when I was in high school and one of the computers in the publications room ate my entire yearbook page I was working on... I had just saved it and it was nearly complete, and it left me with a completely blank page. I was just a bit irritated, as is evident by the fact that I remember it with perfect clarity more than 10 years later.... :D

I never thought I'd grow to love my computer either, but I do. And like you, on sleepless nights it's my best mate ever! I enjoyed your cute and catchy poem.

Perfect topic choice that we can all relate to. Big smiles at your cute rant!
I actually drove over a computer printer (repeatedly)after tossing it into our office parking lot- with my truck one weekend years ago...long story but it began with some simple computer issues that progressed into a daylong ordeal which transferred over to the printer and by golly I was done with all that nonsense at that point. Wish I would have prayed instead :-}

This one was so VERY fun - and yes, of course, I could totally relate. A favorite of mine (the poem, not the irritation LOL).

I can certainly relate to this poem. I have had a few computers over the years and I know what it is like to struggle with them. I was smiling throughout the entire read. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face. :)

God Bless!

Very creative and honest, a few home truths for those of us who are closer to the crypt than the cradle. ;-(
