(Anybody else relate to this one?)
My laptop wakes like a drunken snail.
I only need to check my email.
A shadow of its former speed.
Does it not know my urgent need?
I rarely add a program to its brain.
So I do not understand this drain.
The battery is nearly dead.
I hate that blinking light of red.
It is still scanning files for threats.
I don’t know why it frets.
My machine is too slow to catch a virus.
The thing crashes like a digital Icarus.
It has been an hour since I turned it on.
This paperweight won’t load until the dawn.
I think I will go out to play
And check my email another day.
