Non-ode to a Copier

Man created a monster,

A mechanical beast
intended to serve convenience
purpose-altered to frustrate
the hard-working masses
and thwart efficiency.

With feigned collation
the beast begins a task
and suddenly balks, pain
stapled on its face, task lost
within twisted entrails.

So thoroughly hidden
as to stymie even the
most skilled technician,
trained in the science of
mechanical manipulation.

The beast refuses to work
until every whim has been
met and once working,
produces pages crinkled and
streaked from effort.

Man created a monster.

This is a perfect verdict against the monster machine! This happened to me last week at work and I had to reschedule an appointment because of the demonic forces which prevailed.
