An Ode to My Printer

A louder beep
An orange light
A paper jam


What to do
but to try
to try and fix
what cannot print


Check the chest
Open the cover
to discover
another lever


Push the lever
colored green
and pull with all
of your puny might


To try and fix
what cannot print


Pull the tabs
Check each one
only to find,
when all is done
that there are no jams
under any one


Close the chest
Pull down the lever
Shut the cover
to try and fix
what cannot print


Move to the side
Behind the panel
And pull open that cover
to go uncover
the paper jam


Once again,
there are no jams
of paper stuck
in the printer's body


What to do,
but to call
the technician
to try and fix
what cannot print


Until the next time
the next orange light,
flashing mockingly
and the next paper jam
