Humor Me
Upgradecrocky
By Michael Ersevim 

(with apologies to Lewis Carroll)

’Twas thrillig, while the solver goves
But myred and fumbled with the ribbon;
All flimsy were the shortcuts now,
And the moans of wraths outshpillon.

“Beware the Upgradecrock, my son!
The print that hides, the macros that harm!
Beware the Cutcut linx, and shun
The lumious Bandwidthcharm!”

He took his carpal mouse in hand:
Long time the old Celex foe he’d known—
But tested by the DSUM command,
In online help was thusly shown.

And as in office thought he stood,
The Upgradecrock, with virus of maim,
Ensnared itself in directories root
And googled as it came!

One, two! One, two! Undo, Redo!
The carpal keyboard went ticker-tack!
He saved it quick, before the blue
And went to buy a spiffing Mac.

“And hast thou slain the Upgradecrock?
Come to my laptop, (my spleamish toy!)
O crabjuice spray! Yahoo! Ebay!”
He rebooted in his joy.

’Twas thrillig, while the solver goves
But myred and fumbled with the ribbon;
All flimsy were the shortcuts now,
And the moans of wraths outshpillon.
