16-bit Intel 8088 chip (1 Viewer)



I found this poem on the Bukowski page of PoemHunter.com (http://www.poemhunter.com/charles-bukowski/). Anyone have a clue of what book it is from?

Not his most epic poem--but it fills me with joy none the less. Here is the text to the poem:

16-bit Intel 8088 chip

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
for they format (write
on) discs in different
the Tandy 2000 runs MS-DOS but
can't use most programs produced for
the IBM Personal Computer
unless certain
bits and bytes are
but the wind still blows over
and in the Spring
the turkey buzzard struts and
flounces before his
Garret, in the navigation menu to the left is an item called "Works database." I only bring that up because it would have answered your question. It would not have said hello like Ponder did though, so maybe you did the right thing.
I thought you were a Dane, a great Dane.:confused:
