DATAWOCKY
              =========

'Twas global and the megabytes
 Did gyre and gymbal on the disk
 All mimsy were the prompts and codes
 And the software was brisk

 Beware the microchip my son
 The bits, the bytes and bauds and such
 Beware the CRT and shun
 The qwerty keyboards clutch

 He took his self-pace book in hand
 Long time the menu key he sought
 Then wrestled he with the toaster drive
 And sat a while in thought

 Then as he sought that glitchy bug
 The microchip with gates aflame
 Came whiffling through its I/O plug
 And processed as it came

 Asynch, Bisynch, all protocols
 His binary went snicker snack
 He felt it crash, and with a dash
 He came galumphing back

 And didst thou tame the microchip
 Come interface my beamish boy
 O frabjous day, Caloo! Callay!
 O database, O Joy

'Twas global and the megabytes
 Did gyre and gimbal on the disk
 All mimsy were the prompts and codes
 And the software was brisk
