When it rains, it pours ... isn't that how it goes?

In other words ... things happen in multiple blows
First one thing goes wrong, and then another does
As the dominoes fall ... mutliplying all of the dust

Today, it was hard drive problems at the start ...
And then, in time ... yet another became part ...
Of the overall problem ... the mouse got dizzy
And it took awhile to figure out what kept it busy

Finally decided to disconnect the PS/2=style bus port
And switch back to an MS Pro Mouse, which caught
... And now, I'm moving quite merrily right along ...
And the new dead mouse is boxed, stopped mid-song
