Hardware must be rigorous,

standing up to the challenge

all the OS that can fail it

all software chinks

in it’s armor,

(Didn’t see that one coming)

One leap ahead, one pace of clock tick

CPU counting,

Ready?  No, the bus tells me

CPU crosses it’s arms

nope, not now,

CDROM is busy

CPU Snoring in between cycles

click, click

a square wave snore,

GUI nudges him,

It’s time to work

only been 100 microseconds

I can use the rest!

Geeks in love.
