Computer Zen 

Your file was so big. 
It might be very useful. 
But now it is gone. 
------------------------------------------- 
The Web site you seek 
Cannot be located, but 
Countless more exist. 
-------------------------------------------- 
Chaos reigns within. 
Reflect, repent, and reboot. 
Order shall return. 
----------------------------------------------- 
Program aborting: 
Close all that you have worked on. 
You ask far too much. 
------------------------------------------------ 
Windows NT crashed. 
I am the Blue Screen of Death. 
No one hears your screams. 
------------------------------------------------- 
Yesterday it worked. 
Today it is not working. 
Windows is like that. 
--------------------------------------------------- 
First snow, then silence. 
This thousand-dollar screen dies 
So beautifully. 
--------------------------------------------------- 
With searching comes loss 
And the presence of absence: 
"My Novel" not found. 
-------------------------------------------------- 
Stay the patient course. 
Of little worth is your ire. 
The network is down. 
--------------------------------------------------- 
A crash reduces 
Your expensive computer 
To a simple stone. 
--------------------------------------------------- 
Three things are certain: 
Death, taxes and lost data. 
Guess which has occurred. 
--------------------------------------------------- 
You step in the stream, 
But the water has moved on. 
This page is not here. 
--------------------------------------------------- 
Having been erased, 
The document you're seeking 
Must now be retyped. 
--------------------------------------------------- 
Serious error. 
All shortcuts have disappeared. 
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
