iFactory Reset

iFactory Reset Written by Brett Somers On 4-13-16
{Thank you for calling iFactory Reset} {Name?} Brett {Device Type?} Human {IMEI code?} ***-xx-xx34 {What is it you’re calling for?} Memory's faded Processor’s jaded Bios clock is ticking too fast Program glitches From a complicated past Life files beyond defrag Inputs too many So they lag Outputs not enough to complete the day Home drive support is missing No relational database Barely even a tuple array Can’t get X’s and O’s From 1’s and 0’s My touch screen is frozen pink It’s been over a year Since I’ve had a good sync And there’s a certain user bug I just can’t shrug Without overheating This computer’s mug So please at last Will you reset my past? My info’s backed up in the cloud If that many gigabytes are aloud {Processing…Waiting…} {Processing…Waiting…} {Human Incompatibility Error} {Processing Rejected} Perhaps it’s best that there’s not a computer Beneath this chest Since pain and suffering Gives a human zest Maybe life isn’t a program after all Perhaps I’m not predestined to fall A computer at times may have less quirks But it was programmed to do certain work My life is of my own choosing And frustrating though at times it may be I prefer this choosing Over pre-programmed monotony
