Dr. Seuss Explains Why Computers Crash from the November 2000 Actrix Newsletter

If a packet hits a pocket
                    on a socket on a port,
and the bus is Interrupted
                    at a very last resort,
and the access of the memory
                    makes your floppy disk abort,
Then the socket packet pocket
                    has an error to report.
If your cursor finds a menu item
                    Followed by a dash.
And the double-clicking icon
                    puts your window in the trash,
And your data is corrupted
                    cause the index doesn't hash,
Then your situation's hopeless
                    and your systems gonna crash!
If the label on the cable
                    on the table at your house
says the network is connected
                    to the button on the mouse,
but your packets want to tunnel
                    to another protocol,
that's repeatedly rejected
                    by the printer down the hall,
and your screen is all distorted
                    by the side effects of gauss,
till your icons in the windows
                    are as wavy as a souse,
then you may as well reboot
                    and go out with a bang,
'cuz sure as I'm a poet
                    the suckers gonna hang!
When the copy of your floppy's
                    getting sloppy in the disk,
And the macrocode instructions
                    cause unnecessary risk,
Then you'll have to flash the memory
                    and you'll want to RAM your ROM,
Quickly turn off the computer
                    and be sure to tell your Mom!
