Good-Bye Windows Xp - Poem by Roy Blokker

So good-bye, Windows XP,
Look what they're doing to me.
I can't even upgrade the system:
I must buy a whole new PC.

My computer's talking suicide;
Its despairs it cannot hide.
It tells me, "Dear One, it's been fun,
But I'm at the end of Logan's Run.
My operating system's crap
And I'm too old to fill the gaps.
If I were human and not machine
They'd turn me into Soylent Green.
So now I lay me down to sleep
Dreaming of electric sheep.
Pull the plug, be done with me,
I don't need your sympathy,
Just a place to rest my drives,
A hardware heavenly bee hive
Where computers go to interface
- I wonder if there's such a place? "
And sad, forlorn, like lovers tossed,
I realized my cause was lost:
My laptop soon would be aborted;
Its systems are no longer supported.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this for fun when Microsoft informed me they no longer support Windows XP, which is all I have... Anyone whose technology is as far out of date as mine will relate. I posted it on Poetry and Literature to good response. Enjoy! And type me a response via snail mail...
