User Name and Password

"User name" and "password" That's all you need to know. Type them in , press "enter" Then you’re fine to go. Sounds quite simple really, Till your memory starts to wane, You trawl the deepest caverns Of your tired and aging brain. You thump the keyboard harder As your temper starts to fray, And curse the screen before you With its "road block" in the way. No pet, place or loved one’s name Will give you access rights, When you cannot remember Those all important bytes. Defeated, crazed you finally press "Forgot your password?" key But can't answer all the questions To get you through security To release your rescue e-mail From this digital dictator, Requires you reacquaint yourself With your "administrator" ? So how do you escape From this technical morasse? Caught with no ropes or crampons In this digital crevasse ? Well this is my solution When you face the software snub, Pull out the plug, put on your coat And "log off" down the Pub !
