IF Dr. Suess were to explain computers …

it might go something like this: 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 crash!!!

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,

When the copy of your floppy’s getting sloppy on the disk
and the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
then you’ll 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!
