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.
