And I'm constantly accused of plagiarism!

Because I could not stop for Tech,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And all Technology.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My iPod, and my Kindle too,
For his civility.

We passed the school, where children strove
To understand this thing;
We passed the fields of gazing cows,
Which looked like Gateway's thing.

Or rather, they passed us;
The drives grew quivering and chill,
For virus-laden were my drives,
And my read heads soon were still.

We paused before a server room
That seemed all safe and sound;
But then came the shrieking of a drive
As it ground its bearings down.

Since then 'tis centuries, or so it seems
Frustration builds each day
As we await the Service Reps
And head toward eternity.
