IT DEFLECTOR
(8/22/16)

I don't
want
to know how
computers
work

I just
want to do
my job

unfortunately
on most days
I am
the de facto
network director
in this office

I swap out
hardware

move profiles

change user
names

passwords

as if I knew
what I was
doing

the actual
person
with the most
expertise
in our small
company

is smart enough
to work remotely

from home

removing himself
from my daily
computational
misadventures

oh
I've picked up
enough
to get us by
over the years

kick the can
down the road
a few weeks
at a time

but I really know
nothing
beyond the basics

even though
I've had quite
the opportunities
to learn

I've sadly
devolved
from a young
technogeek

to an old
hope for the best
alchemist

I'll just
reboot

walk around
the room
a few times

and say
the magic
words
