Why did I add a buffalo picture to my post today? Well I think this old buffalo was frustrated as we all slowed down and took pictures of him as he was walking down the road. I think he was just trying to get where he was going! That's how I felt when I was having trouble with my computer,...I just wanted it to work so that I could get where I was wanting to go! It was such a FRUSTRATION!!! But I did have fun writing this poem, and it kind of helped me to put it all into perspective!


As I sit at my computer I cannot find a connection
And it is a source of anger and it brings to me frustration

How can I read my email, or check Facebook, or my blog
When this stupid old computer sits here like a sleeping dog!

I’ve tried everything I know of to get this old dog on its feet
But I haven’t found the answer, so I’m ending in defeat

I guess I’m writing this here poem to vent, and simply bide my time
Till my hubby can wake up and get his honey back online

Connectivity is low!… It kept saying as I clicked
So I gave up in frustration, guess I know when I am licked

Do other people have this problem? Or is it only me?
I wish I knew the answers, and could find what the problem be!

But I’m kinda having fun putting my frustration into words
It’s a therapy of sorts,…cuz I’m no computer nerd

I could really use the “Geek Squad”, if I had the 80 bucks
I won’t see that little beetle bug and to that I just say,…shucks!

It wasn’t very long ago that I didn’t have this laptop
But now that I am into it I find that I can’t stop

Can’t stop clicking, can’t stop scrolling, can’t stop typing, reading, rolling
Someone help me, I’m addicted!….. (Hey this poem is really growing)

Ok, I will stop now,… I really need to get a grip
I will stop my whining and complaining and have a stiff upper lip

Thanks for listening to my story,… it helped me just to vent
Vent about all my frustration,…and about how my morning went

You should try this kind of therapy next time you feel frustration
Either that or to the funny farm,…I’ll meet you at the station! (:>)
