Underground Pool: iMemorandum

By Kevin Kypers '12 (Animation)

I brought my MacBook to the Apple Store
For months my computer had been ailing
Shutting down, starting up—it wouldn’t work anymore
The Geniuses said the hard drive was FAILING
I recalled long nights in the studio
Pushing my hardware beyond limitations
Or the Quadra 610 from days long ago
A child playing with drawing applications
He was creative, ambitious—but no philanthropist
Just an entrepreneur, a mogul, a suit
A practicing Buddhist, but devout Capitalist
And we have all tasted his forbidden fruit
The Almighty DUM rings out and offers insight
As we stare at the monitor’s bright, bright light
