My take on a funny aspect hardly ever seen by people. The frustration of computer programmers. All the code and software they handle can drive anyone insane.

Click clack, his fingers crack.

Of his keyboard black,

he has the knack.


Twit Beep, the programs sweep.

The processor heats,

The Codings sweet.


Bleep bleep, the error code.

he has to fold

and frustrations hold.


Whir tick, the hardware clicks:

the software works,

his lips he licks.


Groan, sigh, he wants to cry:

The program’s bad,

the coding died.


Boom, scream, he leaves the screen.

Drinks a beer

and eats ice cream!


Tick for me,
