What if Dr. Seuss Wrote Technical Manuals
If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a pot
And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
& the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort
the socket packet pocket has an error to report.
If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
and the double clicking icons put your window in the trash,
And your data is corrupted ‘cause the index doesn’t hash
Then your situations hopeless & your systems gonna crash!
If the label on your cable on the gable at your house,
says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
But your packets want to tunnel to another protocol
That’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall.
And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,
Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang
‘Cause as sure as I’m a poet, the suckers gonna hang.
Then the copy of your floppy’s getting sloppy on the disk,
And the micro code instructions cause unnecessary RISC,
Then you hafta flash your memory & you’ll want to RAM your ROM,
Quickly turn off your computer and be sure to tell your mom!!
