It's my first try at a Pindaric ode, and for once it's not based on another work-except for the last line. Kudos to anyone who can identify the source. Imagine it being read by Dylan Thomas. Ode to a Deceased Printer O laser printer, workhorse of our realm With PCL 6 proudly at the helm We welcomed you on your beginning day Your printouts were a wonder to behold With illustrations for the tales they told Two-sided printing, and an extra tray But now you do grow old and out of sorts Make origami printouts of reports And spill out toner fine as any soot I am afraid at last thou art kaput Be off with you, dead printer, through the door! And dying so, sleep your sleep mode no more Fred King Medical Librarian, MedStar Washington Hospital Center [log in to unmask] 202-877-6670 ORCID 0000-0001-5266-0279 MedStar Authors Catalog: http://medstarauthors.org Somehow it seems I managed to get old.
