Un-natural connections , made by infernal machines .
Some like swiss clockworks , most like bad dreams .
With no way to fathom , which one you'll get next .
Quite often they leave us ,completely perplexed .
Stumbling most blindly ,through what we know not .
Like bad method actors ,in some soap opera plot .
A connection established ,with much fuss and great cost.
Should not at the whim of some server be lost.
A mantra recited , a rabbit's foot touched.
A white knuckled grip on the mouse that I clutch .
The command has been sent , acknowleged , recieved .
The line is now open , or so I believe .
When for some reason , I'll never know why .
My connection's been lost , once again it's... GOOD BYE !

I thought this one might ring a few bells and hit a raw nerve or two ,but at least seven of you apparently got to read it without being booted off ! Thanks for the comments!
