Drastic Ending Loser’s Lament

As I stared through windows gray,
Thoughts went wild with sheer dismay.
All keys I tried so cruelly mocked;
The doors were clearly staying locked.

Hair pulled cleanly by the root
Frustration blooms with each reboot-
Shameless threats remaining moot
With every failed three flange salute.

How I wished I’d listened closely!
Should’ve learned what mattered mostly…
Should’ve driven hard to C:
My own infallibility.

What to do?

Life’s interrupted.

My hobby crushed, collapsed,
***corrupted***

Grab a hammer? Smash to vapour?

Start afresh with pen and paper!

  1. Take the lump of Dell back,
    Listen to me and don’t slack,
    Go online, the fast track,
    And buy a brand new shiny Mac.

    Whence crashes will no longer ire,
    And reboots will cease to tire,
    Once out of the dark Windows mire,
    Allow the Mac to light your fire.

    …I’ve run out of rhyming stuff. Just buy a mac!

    Dad will fix it

    Emergency ended

    Love for his K8 looks

    Loike it will have to be mended

    I had to use my driving licence, cause I don’t have a poetic one!

  3. Corrupted and you decide to write verse? You are a special person.
    Nicely done.

  4. […] person. Her verse doesn’t reveals some rage that most of us would feel, but also rather the mournful wail and the pathetic revelation that we can’t blame anybody […]

  5. Granny says:

    What’s done is done,

    It can’t be fun.

    Put on your shorts…

    Go take a run.

    A quality bit of verse K8. Excellent. Jaysus you’re a poet and I didn’t know it. I have a lot of Windows Haiku poems around my desk.

    Haiku: Japanese poetry of three lines. 1st line 5 syllables, 2nd line 7 and third line 5. In some of them may you find solice.

    Yesterday it worked
    Today it is not working
    Windows is like that

    A crash reduces
    Your expensive computer
    To a simple stone

    Stay the patient course
    Of little worth is your ire
    The network is down

    And my own little personal mantra (only for the true techies)

    C:\DOS
    C:\DOS RUN
    RUN DOS RUN

  7. K8 says:

    Lads and ladies; I’m overbowled by the creativityness sparked off here! It’s brung a tear to my I.

    “C:\DOS
    C:\DOS RUN
    RUN DOS RUN”

    heh heh
    Do you have that printed on a teeshirt like on the Simpsons?
    (With obligatory breast pocket for calculators)

  8. Medbh says:

    Lovely poesy, K8. It took me so long to learn to write at the desk top rather on paper first and now I’m hooked and can’t compose anything on paper. Evil!

  9. b3n says:

    Yup! Worst tee-shirt ever!!!

  10. Baino says:

    Yaya . . your back!

  11. Baino says:

    you’re . . .(three words and I can’t even get them right! What chance poetry?)

  12. Brianf says:

    There is no place like
    127.0.0.1

  13. Baino says:

    Brianf – you’re a soppy sappy gunslinger and a geek! (but I luvs ya!)

  14. K8 says:

    I’m back, and at the same time I’m not back. Reality keeps knocking on my door and I’m doing my best to ignore it but it’s very persistent. I’m still trying to let it know tactfully that it’s not welcome here.

    I can’t wait to move house.

  15. SID says:

    I have a crap computer,a blue screen’s all I see
    It makes me want to stand up, and cover it in pee
    But that would be quite dangerous,a shock no doubt in store
    So instead I’ll pull my hair out, and lie screaming on the floor.
