Circulation Breakdown

by Alan Alexander-Manifold


My overdues are spewing out
For books not even due,
And NOTIS says that they don't care;
I think I'll have to sue.

Each recall either screws me up
Or doesn't work at all,
I've called it in, but NOTIS folks
Just won't return my call.

I know that if I hack the code,
I risk losing support,
But every day my bills and fines
Come up a big chunk short.

So now what am I going to do?
Won't run GEAC or DRA;
I can't wait for 5.2.

I'll take the one route that will make
The future look less bleak:
I'm heading for the Outer Banks--
I'll see you in a week!
