The frustration that comes with NEW AND IMPROVED.

I'm a Same-O, Same-O,

Kind of person,

When it's new and improved,

Then it seems to worsen.

It would be really nice

If they left stuff alone

Then I would have far less

Occasion to groan.

 

At the market I don't buy "New and Improved"

'cause I know what those sneaky ones did,

It's going to weigh less, taste worse at best,

Or have a non-functioning, Revolutionary Lid.

Buying a car is just as bad to me

They say it's improved a revolutionary breed.

They say I'm a follower, but with this car I'll lead,

Then they add all that stuff that I really don't need.

 

Web-sites have grown worse

With their drop-down menu,

If I could find where they hid stuff

It might be a good venue.

And just as I understand

How to navigate some site

They up and change it.

Boy does that bite!

 

With Booksie, I was doing so well

It was easy, non-techie, and fun

Until they decided to improve it;

Now it's got my brain on the run.

My stories, I name them all "Short"

'cause on "BOOK" I lose Chapter 2

I've tried the HELP page so often

My mouse-hand is turning blue.

Well I finely found out how to publish

At the bottom of the page. Really Guys?

But to add a picture, forget it!

It tells me something, then lies.

I know that they are trying to be helpful

Within this writer's technological zone

With Drop-downs, colors, and fashion.

But I wish they had left it alone!

 

***

 

Well

Their spell-check stopped working this week

And they're asking to sell me another.

I would buy it if I could send them a check

But they are too tech-ie for that. --- Oh Brother!
