My hard drive is full, I am so scared
I knew this was coming and yet I dared
To keep adding files, photos and stuff
And now my HP is in a huff.
I thought this lap top would not fill up
I thought it was an infinite cup.
But I was wrong and must pay the price
The tech guy says, “Files are saved twice!”
Three times, four times, five and more
“What do you want all those copies for?”
Uh – that’s my back-up system I lie
He shakes his head, I hear a long sigh
Last time I was here I showed you how
To avoid the crisis you have now
Delete the old files… store the new
Not a hard concept, even for you
He should see my closet and my purse
If he did, then he’d really curse!
I want to say, “Just get to your work”
No need to make me feel like a jerk
I have to admit I’m no shining star
I ignored that bright red warning bar.
“Please save all my book files first I wail,
I depend on you – please do not fail
Hours snake by and I am tired.
The techie is still most firmly mired
In my painstaking work from this year
But with joyousness, I finally hear –
“Now your files are all transferred and stored
You’ve now got a working mother board.”
I smile as I pay him for HP’s cure.
He smiles ‘cause he knows he’ll be back for sure
