  • Four, oh four...
    It is with the greatest dissatisfaction
    that I am inclined to inform you
    that the page you have requested
    cannot be found.
    Curses! Yes, curses...
    To the inattentive webmaster
    who broke your concentration
    by failing to correct the
    links that were broken.
    No, Just no,
    It won't suddenly appear
    No matter how hard you click it
    Or reload the pages again
    and again, and again.
    Sad, you're sad,
    Because there's no way access
    the information you are craving
    and now no site there is loading
    The dots on the router continue on blinking
    And meanwhile your heart begins sinking
    Hoping, now praying, now banging your head.
    Finally, a glimpse of connection
    Everything seems to be working once more!
    "No!" You cry out as you refresh some more,
    The page you requested, still
    Four, oh four.
