NO WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY


There’s a window on my router that lights up when there’s a line,
And just lately it is doing little work;
For that little indication that my internet is fine
Has started most abominably to shirk;
It will light up for a minute and I try with greatest glee
Some emails to download, and then a blog or so to see,
But before I can press ‘enter’ on a post to you from me,
In blankly lightless state it’s back to lurk.

I have now got posts all lined up, and with pictures by the score,
W
hile that wretched light’s completely on the blink,
Or rather, doesn’t even blink, but stays blank more and more –
It comes on, but then it goes off in a wink;
And from Telkom I elicit not the slightest sort of sense;
No explanation’s furnished which will act in their defence;
Those few I’ve spoken to all seem particularly dense –
So my Christmas Spirit’s gone right down the sink!

    Oooh, SO frustrating. I have gone through this sort of thing but not for some time, thank goodness.
