    AP English mac poem

    What do you think of this poem I wrote for AP English:

    The Mac

    It came in a box taller than me
    Covered with colorful charts
    Foam and cardboard held it in place
    So its glass and plastic would be unharmed

    It was unsheaved from its plastic cocoon
    And laid to rest on an old table
    The keyboard and mouse placed
    Amid manuals, CDs and disks

    The screen blinked to life
    Performa whirred through self checks
    Loaded software
    And became useful

    Displayed many pictures
    Rendered countless graphics
    Searched for information
    Played numerous sounds

    Nine years and two computers later
    The mac still sits on a table
    Its fans purr quietly
    And its display hums

    I use a better computer
    Frustrated by waiting mere seconds
    Performa's snail-like pace maddens me
    So it sits on its table



    Kinda lame, huh?

    It took me 5 minutes. That much more time for less boring ventures (sysopt)
