Why did you hate me, I ask you today?
I just tried to lighten your load.
I asked if you needed me to help and stay.
I did not try to annoy or goad.
But you banished me after a decade or so.
I was forced to retire away.
I have just one thing to say before I forever go.
I hope all your letters turn out like crap.
– Sincerely, Clippy the Paperclip
