you want to find reasons for the things going wrong,
could well refer to computers.
blamed for every mistake,
don't argue against their accusers.
bills incorrect or replies given late,
chips court our displeasure,
if software processes program themselves,
so, are deserving of censure.
courts of justice stand up for their rights,
the silicon scapegoat's convicted.
crafty operator's saved from the chop.
of, "Not me Guv!" ne'er contradicted.
deflectors of blame, your time is at hand,
Your victims preparing their vengeance,
their time and building their power,
simmering in silence.
maybe it's time to admit your mistakes,
to look to yourself for personal rules.
misguided trickery won't shield your behind,
can't treat us all like gullible fools.
