A Deserted Computer

Good morning, old computer, why are you cast off?
Microsoft has rejected, left you unsupported.
You were useful in your day, set to blast off;
now your future, not appropriately escorted.

They won't even receive you in recycle bins,
who even rusty cans give new life meaning
"Are you hazardous waste?" I ask myself, "what sins,
have made undesired, not worth new machining?"

I guess I'll have to buy the new one they offer now,
defeated in all my effort to renew you.
I hope that they will have improved things somehow,
since they became. so heartless to eschew you.
