The Virus

Sneaky, evil and maliciously intended to be
Ripping your information and sending it weehee
A hacker, he's the one
Who does YOUR banking for you using YOUR "log on"

Names of virus there are many
"Pretty Park" with scenery
South Park seems so to appeal
Nevertheless, evil is this deal
No hoax, this one is for real

Protection it laughs right in the face
Scoops right by with grace
Sends all you passwords to who knows where
Someone will or can use them anywhere
Illegal the hacker's intention
Your name might be used without prevention
The Police perhaps knock's on your door
And you're the one with handcuffs on the floor
Because your name showed in illegal activity
When you open PrettyPark.exe with scenery
Your ID shows on luscious sites
As the hacker took your name for a ride
Or sends out illegal mail
With your name attached but not by means of a snail


So please my friend's be careful when it shows
Don't open, and do not do the uploads
This one is as REAL as you and I
Be save, but don't be shy

To the point, Helmut.  Thanks for posting this REAL warning, and in such a delightful way.

One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.
