Electrical Interruption

When the lights went out, we all stopped short and wondered,
Not so much because we really couldn't see,
But curious, for, as far as we could tell, it hadn't thundered,
And the activity we'd started couldn't be.

Nobody told us why we sat in dimness,
And the computers couldn't do their thing;
Some did, but some did not, exhibit distress,
But, when they came on, we all said, "Whoopee ding!"
