Reinstalling my System (2/9)
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
But, as per norm, a glitch appeared
I shouldn't love them all!
Perhaps a virus tossed its rope
To scale my firewall.
So I have had to wipe my drive.
Yes, all my saves and downloads
I sacrificed for sake of health;
I've wandere'd up and down roads
To find some way to purge and scour
Evicting rootkits, bugs,
Change endless loops t0 stable code--
Refrain from meds and drugs
And find some inner peace at last
Bad memories all flushed,
All hurt resentment from my mind,
And every friend-crush, crushed.
The manufacturer decreed
There's only one connection
Allowed twixt user and OS;
All others cause infection
And this installment does the trick--
It brings a lucid mind
With just the basic software,
Pre-installed and well defined--
Quick and efficient, bland, but still
There's just enough of hard drive space
To fit that suite inside.
