Anticipation hurries, fingers fly
Character images appear on screen
Before return key pressed attention keen
And hopeful silent prayer is offered high

The fateful finger falls on waiting key
Computer cunning pauses to provoke
Unpleasant feelings about which none should joke
Confused programmer screams "How can this be?"

Hot hormones coarse in caffiene coated veins
As garbage spreads disorder on the disk
Attempts to fix any software suffer risk
That force despair on anyone's hopes for gains

No comfort shall be found until the urge
To try a new solution does emerge.
