April is National Poetry Month:
My mouse is misbehaving
and my keyboard's on the fritz.
The computer's not computing,
but is dropping bytes and bits.
The hard drive's click-click-clicking
and the printer's spitting ink.
The CD's started stuttering.
The screen is on the blink.
The memory is failing.
Things are grinding to a halt.
And, even worse, I realize
it's probably my fault.
I thought it would be funny.
It was really just a joke.
I never thought the whole computer
might go up in smoke.
I guess I learned my lesson:
When it comes to your PCs,
it's best if you don't ever try
to feed the mouse some cheese.
