(I posted this on "The Alley", and someone suggested to put it in open.  Anyway forgive the repost, but this turned out pretty entertaining and I thought you all might get a kick out of it, you computer junkies and technomaniacs!)


There once was a hacker named Vern
who was ill to all trying to learn.
So he tweaked his new "Virus"
in attempt to conspire us
and make us cuss worser than "dern!"

He dunked it down cyber space pipes
and awaited for echoes of gripes
to ascend from the lips
of those lacking good tips
how to deal with mean bugs of all types.

So our screens did a tremulous roll.
And our windows forgot how to scroll.
Our wares were all shot
and we viewed  "I THINK NOT"
as we lost user friendly control.

But some after many mishaps,
became tired of such technical traps.
And said "I'll revert
to papyrus and dirt
or ditch Windows for Apple perhaps."

(I have a Mac, and believe you me this is just
a good humored joke!  Doesn't matter what Machine you have,
You'll have some trouble!)

Stephanos, ya beat me to the punch.  I logged on this morning to move it for you.     No worries though...glad you got it reposted here from the Alley...I realize not many souls intrepidly visit that dank, dark place; at least here, more can see and read.

You have a good one.  I'm gonna go ahead and close the thread in the Alley.

I, too, have been victimized thus,
Downloading files I thought I could trust.
The real time antidote,
Is two hands on the throat,
Of the cretins who write all these bugs.

Hilarious!  It is SO irritating when some IDIOT sends you a virus! Still trying to rid mine of the KAK/Worm - a french email virus.

A worm slithered inside
slick as snail's spit
corrupted my files
my registry died
now my puter's a pile of ****!
