Haiku: Third Time a Charm

New modem required
So said cable company
It came in the mail

Also cable box.
Cable guy to the rescue
My problems were small

Three long hours passed
He pronounced all in good shape –
Until the next day

When it became clear
Impossible to record
Why have a TV?

Different guy sent
Seems original box wrong
Installed another

Now I could record.
Problems solved I watched TV
Then after four days

No picture on screen.
Third guy came with his tool box
Things were looking up.

He wasted no time
Found ancient cable splitter
Replaced it. Voila!

With my apologies to the traditional Haiku form
