Safe Mode

Posted in Biographical, Poetry on July 11, 2012 by telescoper

It’s broken down.
So what? Who cares?
Silence. Move on.

System restart.
Using safe mode.
(Without plug-ins).

Should do the trick.
Or perhaps not.
Who cares? Move on.

Claim a refund?
No warranty…
Take to the tip?

It was rather
Expensive. True,
but years ago.

Not worth the cost
Of repairing,
Things of that sort.

In the mean time,
Back in its box.
Leave it a while.

Switch the thing off
Then on again.
You know the drill.

Usually works.
If not, just get
Another one;

A different
Make this time, more
Reliable.

by Peter Coles (aged 49).
