I had this published in TPJ Summer '99 issue. But, in case you don't read it (which you should!) I thought I would share it here too. As with all my Perl Poetry, this will run.

if ("a packet hits a pocket") {
    On: a;
    socket(ON, A ,PORT,"")
           && the bus is interrupted as a very-last-resort
           && the address of the memory makes your 
              floppy disk, abort;
		
} else {

    "The socket packet pocket has an";
    error: to-report;
} 

if ("your cursor finds a menu item") { 
    "followed by a dash"
            && "the double clicking icon";
    puts: your-items-in-the-trash
            && your data is corrupted cause the 
               index("doesn't", "hash");

} else {
   "Your situation is hopeless"
            && Your system's gonna crash;
} 

if ("the label on the cable") {
    On-the-table, at-your-house;
    Says_the; 
    sub network {"is connected to the button on your mouse"};
    BUT: Your-packets, want-to; 
    {/tunnel to another protocol/};
    thats: repeatedly-rejected; 
    {/by the printer/}; "down the hall"
            && "YOUR SCREEN is all distorted";
    {/by the side effects of Gauss/};
    so: "your icons", in-the-window;
    "are as wavy as a souse";

} else {
    YOU: "may as well reboot" && "go out with a !";
    CAUSE: /Sure as Im a poet/;
    THIS: suckers-gonna-hang;
}

print "Seuss as a tech writer - Kevin Meltzer\n";
