Technical Tip

This is a technical tip so listen to it
Absorb it and assimilate it.
If it’s wet you may dry it,
If it's dirty you may clean it,
If it squeaks you may oil it,
But if it works: don’t fiddle with it!

About the Poem

An apparently silly verse which imparts a valuable truth about life. It may explain why many teachers shout 'don't fiddle with it' every few minutes for no apparent reason.
