May Time

I've been blogless for a few days suffering from that archetypal disease: hard drive crash. Unheralded, no forewarning, just zilch.  And of course, we've never got a completely up to date back up have we? And it's always last week's documents which are the ones you need.  And the email addresses!  So, the poetic juices have been flowing but more of this variety than anything more meaningful...
There was a computer hard drive
Which suddenly took a nose-dive
They poked it and nudged it
But just couldn't budge it
So ...

So... then you wish you'd (a) made a back up (b) chosen a different line ending.
