Why Computers
Sometimes Crash!
by Dr. Seuss

Read Aloud 

If a packet hits a pocket
on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted
at a very last resort,
and the access of the memory
makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket
has an error to report.

If your cursor finds a menu item
followed by a dash,
and the double-clicking icon
puts your window in the trash,
and your data is corrupted
cause the index doesn't hash,
then your situation's hopeless
and your system's gonna crash!

If the label on the cable
on the table 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,
'cuz sure as I'm a poet,
the sucker's gonna hang.

When the copy on your floppy's
getting sloppy in the disk,and
the macro code instructions 
cause unnecessary risk,
then you'll have to
flash the memory
and you'll want to
RAM your ROM,
and then turn off the computer
and seek peace in Notre Dame
