Heave-ho, boys, and off to CES (or MacWorld)!
The writing on the wall  says that the date looms near
So save and backup files [2-5],
Then take care the welfare of your feline pee-er ,
And capture burglars’ smiles [7,8].
Make sure than you can capture all the sights  and sounds ,
Strap wheels to both your feet ,
Have GPS so you can find your way around [12, 13]
In your egg  or dolphin  fleet.
The time looms near, and, really, now, we just can’t wait [16-18]
We cast prognostications [19-21].
Once there, we’ll lend a voice to all the things you hate,
As per our invitation. 
But there’s one gadget we’re not sure we should bring because once you bring it you can’t help using it and once you use it you find out about the icky things in hotel rooms that everybody is aware of but because it’s not immediately visible nobody ever really complains:
