We’ve waited long and suffered
With inferiority in our technology.
Our hearts have been drawn in pain
For the slow processing speed
And the stalls and the never-ending
Updates that increased sluggishnes
(downdates, we should call them).
But yesterday, day of all days!
You came with the FedEx man
In a small, inauspicious box,
Wrapped carefully in foam.
You are sleek, silvery, touch screen
Goodness with an easy-to-use
Keyboard and speakers that work.
When I click on an icon, it opens!
And now that you are mine,
The world will no longer suffer
And miss my mighty missives.
Now I can type and publish and
Still have time to eat and sleep!
Oh, computer, what is a name
Worthy of such salvation?
