“The wind still blows over the Savanna”-by Charles Bukowski


“with an Apple Macintosh
you can’t run Radio Shack programs
in its disc drive.
nor can a Commodore 64
drive read a file
you have created on an
IBM Personal Computer.
both Kaypro and Osborne computers use
the CP/M operating system
but can’t read each other’s
handwriting
for they format (write
on) discs in different
ways.
the Tandy 2000 runs MS-DOS but
can’t use most programs produced for
the IBM Personal Computer
unless certain
bits and bytes are
altered
but the wind still blows over
Savannah
and in the Spring
the turkey buzzard struts and
flounces before his
hens.”

By Charles Bukowski

The discs format in different ways but the wind blows over the Savanna just like always and the buzzard struts before the hens just like always .The consistency in nature contrasts with the failure of technlogy and incompatibility of hardware and software.
