A humorous tale about my new laptop computer, written in rhyming fashion
You're a good computer man.
Well I guess I'll try a new laptop computer again
Since I switched internet service with satellite high-speed, my old desktop can't stand the warp speed pain
So good-bye my old trusty friend
I'll miss you but all good things must surely come to an end
The computer man got all excited when I called him requesting he come to my home
I swear I heard a pitiful sigh on the phone
He knows me ' cos he's worked with me several times before
I swear the last time he got fightin' mad and abruptly left slamming the front door
I ' ain't complain' he's a top-notch computer man
It's just that he sweats when I ask a question he's already answered a hundred times in his detailed plan
I told him Shawneelink ( my old service ) is still trying to send email when my new address is now gmail
He scratched his head and uttered, " I'm afraid for the very first time I may fail "
I reassured him telling him, " If anyone can do it, you can. "
After all you're a good computer man
He dabbed his forehead and prayed out loud
" Lord help me get through this. Thank God there's no crowd "
I asked him if I could move my new laptop to any room
He answered sarcastically, " It sits on a table or in your lap or you can take it to the moon "
I looked at him knowing he was jousting just a tiny bit
I swear I saw a drop of blood form on his upper lip
Finally my new laptop computer was ready to use
When I asked him which icon to click to get on the internet, he turned bright red and possibly blew a fuse
He reminded me that he was retiring next week
I told him, " I'm sure ' gonna miss you " and lovingly kised his flushed cheek.
