Zzzzzzz Darling Computer, Please Come Alive!
Yesterday I played with my computer.
He sang songs to me, helped me simplify my work
Also confused me with his complexity;
But today it’s unwell,
Oh, What a pity!
The rains came, the lightning struck
Electrical charges got transmitted to him.
His electronic emotions let out a spark
And before I knew it his face went dark.
I let the rains reduce
On the problem at hand I mused.
My darling, computer was very sick
Pressing his buttons, I waited for it him to light up his face
The wall clock kept ticking, but he showed no recovery (trace) .
I called the Electronics Doctor to cure him.
Asked Doc to give him anti-virus or a hard disk replacement.
He still didn’t turn on and all cures went to vain.
I guess he was too scared to open his eyes
Lest the water would pour again.
Darling Computer, please come alive
I cannot live without you, even for a while.
Either he loved and missed me too much
Or he no longer was scared of rain & lightning
For that evening he lit up his screen with the sound of ‘ting’.
I danced with joy and flirted with him
He allured me to romance him and for me he did sing.
I made a promise to protect him from rain and lightning
So that he never gets mad at me and never makes a fuss
And we lived happily ever after- the two of us.
