Soup Is Down

Today my life went into apathy condition
Out of the window it went,my poetry nutrition

Not being able to log in,the Soup is down
Now,all I have left is sitting here like a clown

Because several atempts later,still not getting my log in bingo..
I finally lost it,my computer and desk came flying out my attic window
