There was a time when discs were floppy,
they could be moved in different ways.
However, if you were too sloppy,
data were thrown in disarrays.
Piling them one on top the other
without a cover to protect
was a bad idea and bother
and often ended in defect.
Hard discs, of course, resist each bending,
like the disks here from a tree.
We hope they’ll have a better ending,
but how and where we cannot see.
