An Ode to My Printer

Beep
Whirr
STOP

 

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
