My Pal Dell


Every morning
At five a.m., I swear
My old computer shows
A whole array of…
So it seems, like…
Symptoms of… incontinence
I‘d say!

I can’t tell you when it started
Perhaps he hid it well
But one night when I had to rise
And freezing strode to serve
Myself (for lack of other choice)
My ear caught unmistaken noise
Straight from the office
But unlike any I have heard before.

Like men in utmost pain
I jumped to help
Or maybe I just gently crept
Aiming to protect my homeland or
At least the life and liberty in my abode

There –
Seized by glitter green and red
He stood as if it was mid day
And not mid winter night
Feigning courage but indeed
Was being preyed by vicious virus
All this time - Please
Take me first I cried!

Next day – first thing with the light,
I rushed the local legendary whiz
Come take an urgent look!
(It was his first, but since,
They got to know each other well)
I left them there alone
Too great my pain was to withstand
The tortures I believed delivered
By that geek!

Ever since my Dell still carries on
He’s never worked again
The way he used to in the past
But then again and to be fair
It could be said about the one
Who writes those lines right now!

Oh yes, that thing…
I mentioned at the start
I’ve never asked and he for sure
Does not pretend to know
If all this morning grimace
And those groans are still
Part of his problems or perhaps
His timely medical routine
(I hope).
