Why It’s There

The little plastic doohickey
        on the opposite side
                of the eject button
is like the drawer
        that is not a drawer
                under the sink.
It has no function.
        It is not a button.
                It exists merely
for symmetry.
        That’s why it’s there!
                That’s the only reason
why it’s there!
