If Dr. Seuss Ran Your
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,
socket packet pocket has an 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,
data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
situation's hopeless and your system's gonna crash!
label on the cable on the table at your house,
network is connected to the button on your mouse,
packets want to tunnel to another protocol
repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall . . .
. . . And
your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
So your icons
in the window are as wavy as a souse;
may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang.
copy on your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk,
And the macro
code instructions are causing unnecessary risk,
have to flash the memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM,
turn off the computer and be sure to tell your Mom!
