Bugs, Bugs, Bugs in the Code

by Lee A. Hart

My program shipped on schedule,
But it would not behave.
A copy went to Hoover Dam,
And caused a tidal wave!

I wrote some code to buy and sell,
And hoped to make some cash.
But when I started using it,
Next day, the market crashed!

I had so many bugs I thought
that I could sell some off.
I called a friend, and he agreed.
He works for Microsoft!

I wrote a little piece of code
That worked without a hitch.
But antivirus companies
Said, "Thanks! You've made us rich!"

I put it on a floppy disk,
But it did not work out.
For every time I put it in,
Computers spit it out!

I wrote some code for Washington.
They haven't used it yet.
It counts the votes for President.
I wonder who we'll get!


This silly little ditty is about computer programming. The three-finger-salute is when you have to press the CTRL-ALT-DELETE keys, to reset a "crashed" PC.
