No service (50/90 outage)

No service (50/90 outage)

Liner Notes: 

This was a challenge from @vivalarayna to write about the recent 50/90 site outage. I focussed on the 'No Service' messages that are often given in such events.


No Service

One look at the screen might make you
A little nervous
An annoying phrase that gets under
Ones epidermis

The top of the page said

It’s a tennis match that can’t go on
Because there’s NO SERVICE
A restaurant when the waiters have gone

So what do you do when the screen’s mostly white?
Why get a pen and paper and write

NO SERVICE no way to post
NO SERVICE the fora are toast
NO SERVICE I miss the comments the most
NO SERVICE an unreliable host

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

"I miss the comments the most". Fun take on this challenge prompt. I particularly enjoyed your different approaches to the term "No service" (tennis/restaurants). Glad we're back up and running!

Very nicely done! I've just been writing my own lyrics on the 503 theme so this one caught my eye
