Terrible Technology This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Crazed computers constantly gone corrupt.
I believe their wires must have been set on fire;
Their failure to comply makes my anger erupt!

Terrible technology tremendously teases my temper.
On and on, waiting for a reboot makes me yawn.
Finger-tapping, patience fleeing, nerves getting tenser.

Loading lingers, luring lots to lose their minds.
Limited access to websites galore,
And waiting for one to load makes me snore.

Savage spinning wheels circulate without cease.
The sight fills me with fright, knowing that
My computer is frozen even through the night.

Reboot, restart, refresh, and reroute.
Why won’t this machine ever work?
My lack of patience is driving me berserk!

This dragging dumb desktop – delete! Delete!
Isn’t this software already obsolete?
Human versus computer: complete defeat.

Yeah, that pretty much describes my computer perfectly. :)

I can tell you put in some effort working on the rhyme scheme and rhyme itself! Good job and applause! You obviously did not write this in two minutes and there is no incorrect spelling...none of that annoyance! :D
