My Computer Virus

I had a computer virus, I thought you might like to know.
Not one which makes the computer run real slow.
It completely closed me out of where I wanted to go.
The intruder’s name was "fake antivirus" just for show.

I called my security provider and told them of my woe.
Knowing they would be glad to give me help from a pro.
When the lady finished talking all I could say was “whoa”,
to the help offered for “only” one hundred dollars quid pro quo.

When I respectfully declined, I was told their help I could forego.
By freely downloading a tool, from their website, duh, hello.
After cruising the information given, my face was all aglow.
All I had to do was click on the virus list found down below.

The file went to my computer and read all from head to toe.
When it finished the beast was gone, all I thought was “holy joe”.

May 27 2010 For Carolyn's "Monorhyme" contest

    Nice rhyme. It takes the cake they wanted $100 for something you were able to do by reading and clicking. Of course, you have always been electronically wise. (They didn't offer this until you declined to pay the $100.) I'm glad your computer wasn't destroyed as my previous computer was damaged by a virus. I don't understand the pleasure people gain from sending viruses.

    Very clever, Charles. I don't understand why some folks get a kick out of infecting our computers with viruses. Congratulations on your success in the contest! Love, Carolyn

    Too funny - especially the part where first they try to fleece you then mention they have a free product that might help you. Makes you wonder who the real villians are - the one who gave you the virus or the ones that can fix it? Sometimes I think they may be one and the same. Loved the poem. Great monorhyme. Empathy abounds. Joe
