Dr. Seuss Explains

Why Computers Sometimes Crash

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 of your floppy's getting
sloppy in the disk
and the macrocode instructions cause
unnecessary risk,

then you'll have to flash the memory
and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer and be
sure to tell your Mom!
