Well Past One

It’s well past one and somehow I’m still working
The server in the Philippines still down
Each place I search another problem’s lurking
Computers help the fools to get you down

Somebody was a little bit too careless
Deleted files that needed to remain
On days like these I’m hurrying to hairless
I hope that they don’t do the same again

In Israel or Russia, maybe Turkey
Someone is thinking “what would happen if …”
The pool of foolish folk is dark and murky
And when they’re left alone it scares me stiff

They scream to fate “Come on and do your worst!”
But never think that they should back-up first!!!
