By Walt Perryman

I have a photographic memory but the picture is dim,
I think it’s because; it’s never been loaded with film.

I can’t remember passwords and it’s driving me insane.
I can’t remember any of them and they’re all the same.

Sometimes I write it down, put it where it’s easy to find,
Later, when I can’t find it, it really blows my mind.

Next, those security questions come on the screen,
When I can’t answer them is when I start to scream.

Next the stupid puzzle security images come into sight,
Then I am locked out when I cannot guess them right.

Then when I am backed up against the wall,
I pick up the phone and make the ‘help’ call.

I would be a hacker but I’m not smart enough,
Heck, I can’t even hack into my own dang stuff.
