An ode to WordPress

I really want to write a post
On composting and poo
But WordPress just won’t let me
Is it the same for you?

I try to load the ‘New Post’ page
But my browser simply sits there
The writing box does not appear
I’m tearing out my hair

So for some light relief
I turn to blogs I read
But even these will not load
However much I plead

I want to read of Metan’s
Latest research gem
But WordPress just won’t let me
What is wrong with them?

What about Lord David?
Surely his words will grace my screen
But no, I can’t read anything
The pickings sure are lean

I know, I’ll look at Nana Cath
And see what she’s been making
But WordPress just won’t let me
I think the piss they’re taking

I cannot write upon my blog
I cannot check my spam queue
I cannot see my comments
What is a snail to do?

So please, dear WordPress, heed my plea
And stop your server acting feebly
Or I may be tempted to defect
And transfer my blog to Weebly


And if I’ve managed to post this – it’s a miracle!
And goodness only knows what the formatting will look like

  1. Yay! It posted. I’ve had major problems recently with wordpress clashing with google chrome. If you do a search there are suggestions on how to correct it ( it seems to have worked for me) but the piece of advice given by most on my blog is- Change to Opera instead of google chrome.
    I hope you get some help. Try checking the wordpress forum.

  2. Brilliant stuff! The poem, not the tearing of the hair that is.
    I have noticed on the forum that some of you in England are having issues because of an ISP issue. I’m not sure if anyone has resolved it, perhaps contacting the service provider? Of course you need to be able to access your WP account to be able to see this suggestion…. Good luck, and I wait with bated breath for the poo post. 😉


    • Thanks… I had not got round to blaming the ISP. Do I now need to write and ode to TalkTalk?
      Right now I can see my comments, but goodness only knows how long this will last, or whether I’ll be able to get the more serious post out later today.
