Family: Halting My Velcro-Mind With Sticky Stuff

I cannot live like this, only want
to take a photograph with your
new yellow camera – follow the
instructions, change the settings,
customize; I lose interest

Want to open a link recommended
by a friend, Installation Instructions,
help troubleshooting – no, I come in
peace, content development - what? -
visit security center – where?

Click install now button automatically
download – no such button visible
anywhere; instructions for tar.gz;
what is Targiz – son of Tarzan? -
.rpm: Ripim – Rip Van Winkel?

A YUM repository – a Yum-Yum such
as a dumb giant like Alifanfaron? – and
where is the button, the magical button?
I cannot live like this, nothing done in
one simple step, everything

Comes in fifty questions and sixty
explanations, halting my velcro-mind
with sticky stuff, stopping the process
before we even started, I’ve had
enough!
