I need help writing a poem of sorts. Answered

My neighbors have a really old computer, that can't connect to the internet, and runs windows 95.  I have a bunch of computer parts that I got from other computers, and I built a new one that runs XP.  I know it's not fancy, but it's much better than what they have right now.  I am going to type up a users manual, and I just finished installing windows (I'm using the computer to type this).  The specs aren't ninja, I haven't had money myself for months, and so it was built out of junk, but I'm proud, and I know they'll love it.  Anyways, I want to include some kind of poem with it, I think that would be cool.  Can someone help me write one (could also be read as write me one).  I would be extremely grateful.  On a sidenote, does any have DDR ram sticks that I can put in this thing?  The computer only had 2 slots, and I only have 256mb sticks.  Enough to to day to day stuff, but if their computer gets bloated, then I don't want it to slow down very much.  If you can donate, I would be extremely happy. :)

Well, it scans and it rhymes:

It’s nice to have really good neighbors like you,
And this Christmas, the question was clear:
“How can I help them and what can I do
To bring them some Internet cheer?”

So I cobbled together some parts that I had
To make you a jammin’ PC.
I hope when you use it, it makes you feel glad
That you have a neighbor like me.

Awwwesome, you're my first! Thanks! (There was really nothing to it--I have these boxes of old words and commas and stuff that I figured would come in handy one day--sort of like your motherboards and cables and little jumper things--)

I may have those ram sticks. Iv've got an old xp laptop. Would that be the same kind of stick? You say DDR? As in it says DDR on it, not DDR1,2,3 etc? Those wouldn't work. I dont even know what DDR the ram is. Just an old xp laptop so thought it might be compatible, same OS.

I built you computer

I surder

hope you like it

Hope you dont brike it

but if you do then fike it

I built it out of junk

To me you all's a hunk

not in the sense 'romantic'

more pacific than atlantic

In that your're greater

than other neighboors I've had

Dont get mad

If it's a little slow

Should be better than the ridiculously old one though.

something about them being great neighbors, so when I saw their old computer, I knew I had to make them a new one. And that I hope they like it. It doesn't have to be very long, just big enough to convey the message, kind of like what you find in birthday cards sometimes. Ya, that's what I was looking for, the kind of poem you find in cards. If you hurry, I can sneak up to their house on monday and have my friend swap out the contents of the envelope before christmas.

I'll get to work on it and get back to you before noon today (Sunday, Dec. 23). I'm on Alabama time, but don't worry: I'm fully literate.

sounds good to me. So if I'm on mountain standard time, then you will probably finish earlier here.
