That Desktop Contraption

Isn't it totally amazing

How your life, it controls

That desktop contraption

Your destiny it holds

A screen, keyboard, and mouse

Wires running everywhere

Modem blinking on and off

Frustrated, pulling your hair

One moment it works fine

And the next, it won't

Always at the worst time

Understand it, you don't

Page, exit, delete, command

Publish, link, and end key

Alt, caps lock, control, and enter

Home tabs are Greek to me

Understanding Klingon'd be easier

Than this technical stuff

I long for the good old days

When mailing a letter was enough!
