The Y2K Bug we adverted
And thought that we were Bug-Free,
But then another Bug "flu" in
With it's own brand of misery!

My computer's working just lovely
Or at least it was working, you see,
Until I developed a "weasin'"
To shut down temporarily.

There's plenty of power, water and gas
And the banks go on banking still,
But my personal account may yet Crash
Trying to cover med's and doctor's bills!

I'm "Sick as a dog," or so they say
And dogs are well-known for fleas,
Why must we be bugged with bugs so oft'
Thus keeping us from our ease?

So watch out, Friends, the threat of Bugs
E'en in the Winter is real,
Hope the Flu Bug will fly, to some other guy,
So, back to normal, I can soon feel!
