Hey, down here, it’s me, your banged up, grimy yet loyal keyboard.
Your thumb pounds at my spacebar over and over, while your pathetic spelling forces you to stomp backspace like a doormat with your mucky boots.
I take your neglect all day long. My keys are dirty and worn due to your sordid fat fingers pecking away thoughtlessly.
Let me channel Aretha, “All I’m askin’ Is for a little respect”. You write on kindness, how about some for me? I mean, when your mouse is getting slow, you exchange batteries. A smudge on the screen? You bust out diluted Windex. Yet, I lay here and am a catch-all for your finger filth, cookie/chip crumbs, and spilled drinks.
Turn me upside down and shake me. Do it; I dare ya.
I’m not threatening to strike, us keyboards ain’t like that, but upkeep now and then would be nice. A monthly anti-bacterial towel bath wouldn’t kill anything but germs and a few minutes. A gust of canned air would feel refreshing. Hell, how about another upsidedown shake (it felt kinda good)! Just clean me!
My shortcuts help you find the thesaurus. My PrtScn helps capture important images. And I don’t have to remind you how often my Escape saves you.
So stop jerking me around. You need me. I need you. Let’s type nice.
Your neglected keyboard
