Waiting Room - Poem by Emmanuel Damilola Adeyemo
My system got blind
and needed a new set of eyes,
So I squeezed out 17k
To get its screen replaced.
After about 120 minutes
in the waiting room,
The hardware surgeon approached
and with complacency, he said,
'The surgery was successful'.
My system displayed again!
The gate of joy was let loose
I was overwhelmed.
He made my heart dance for some seconds
and then dropped the bombshell!
My heart shrunk,
Feet became cold,
I took my seat
as his words sunk into my ears,
'The storage organ is also spoilt
and a new hard drive is needed for replacement'.
Tear drops almost found expression,
My knees immediately lost their strength.
Don't know how much long it will take
To live without my computer.
