     If Dr. Seuss Were a Technical Writer.....

     Here's an easy game to play.
     Here's an easy thing to say:

     If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, And the bus 
     is interrupted as a very last resort,
     And the address 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 

     You can't say this?
     What a shame sir!
     We'll find you
     Another game sir.

     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 on 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, 'Cause as sure as 
     I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

     When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
     And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risc, 
     Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to ram 
     your rom. Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell 
     your mom!
