Computers, O’ Computers
How they rule our very lives.
We pretend they are our servants,
But that thought is far from wise.
Consider every aspect
Of our lives for which they touch.
Without them — civilization,
Wouldn’t amount to very much.
They cost us money for repairs,
For those we own or rent.
And frustration? That is normal,
No matter how much is spent.
Great advancements soon come forth,
One week after what we buy.
And the insurance that we pay for
Won’t cover problems that arise!
And there’s always luring software,
To tempt us and beguile;
They never perform as promised,
And take away your smile.
This Y2K that’s coming
May be the best for all!
We need to start all over —
Before civilization falls.
