Intro Here's one my father wrote some years ago. It used to hang on the door to the computer room in building 2 at Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA).

CRASH! goes the System

Two specks of dust on a Winchester disk
No use to hope you missed them
That's the way computing goes--
CRASH! goes the system.

Go exchange the circuit boards
Try and use your wisdom
No way will you catch that bug--
CRASH! goes the system.

Our pride and joy has features galore
It takes a day to list them
And none of them can be used any more--
CRASH! goes the system.
