Intro Notes for those not familar with the terms in this poem -- see below

I'm a CoCo3 from Tandy

I'm a CoCo Three from Tandy
Hi Res Graphics do or die
A custom GIME in place of my SAM
OS-9 will really fly
I've a Multi-PAK interface
Disk and R S 2 3 2
CoCo System multi-user
with a C compiler
And full BASIC-09 too

Notes for those not familar with the terms in this song:

The Tandy Color Computer 3 (CoCo 3) was probably one of the cheapest ever machines that could run a multi-tasking, multi-user operating system
The custom chip in a CoCo 3 that handled address translation, graphics, memory refresh,etc (acronym for Graphics, Interrupts, Memory Enhancements)
Synchronous Address Multiplexor - the chip in older CoCo that handled memory refresh and graphic address generation
Microware's operating system that was available for the CoCo
Multi-PAK interface
A box that was originally designed to allow 4 games cartridges (Program Paks) to be plugged in at once. Used by hackers to allow the disk controller, RS232 port, etc to be plugged in at once
a structured basic produced by Microware for OS-9 and much nicer than the ROM basic in the machine
