Your Oppositional Defiance Disorder
It seems that my frustration grows
each day that you're around...
I know that I was illiterate...
the first time that, you, I found...
But I've worked hard to learn to play
and elude your little quirks...
learned by trial and error the
mechanics to gleaning your perks.
Yes, it is true. My life's enriched
by all the joy you give...
You have opened up the gates
to the world in which i live.
And, though, I am most grateful for
your scenic, cosmic tour...
there is just one annoying pain
that I would wish to cure!
I have come to see the truth
and the truth is plain to see...
You have quite a stubborn streak
and defy authority!
Perhaps, I need inform you
exactly here who's boss...
but then, I fear, as has occurred,
I'd sustain great data loss!
You are such a strong willed child,
demanding your own ways...
and, though, I am your keeper...
you can be obtuse, most days!
It is thus, that I conclude,
Oh, laptop of mine eye...
You have a known disorder,
to oppose and thus defy...
It is labeled ODD, in official fare...
a common malady, of sorts,
that computers seem to share!
Oh! Were there computer meds
to solve this conflict true!
I would take you to the doc
and get some pills for you!
But, alas, until such day
of techno-curing pill,
I will love you, anyway,
and live with your strong will!
