The Night Before Y2K

'Twas the night before New Year,
and all through the nation,
We awaited Y2K,
the millennium sensation.
The chips were replaced in computers with care,
In hopes that "Ol' Bugsy" wouldn't stop there.
While some folks could think they were snug in their beds,
Others had visions of dread in their heads.
And Ma with her PC and I with my Mac
Had just logged on the Net and kicked back with a snack,
When over the server there arose such a chatter,
I called Mister Gates to see what was the matter.
But he was busted, so I flew like a flash,
Off to the bank to withdraw all my cash.
When what with my tearing eyes should I see?
My old ATM, as sick as could be.

Back on the net, The "Master Hacker" was looking so smug,
I knew he was spreading the Y2K Bug!!!
His image downloaded in no time at all,
he whistled and shouted, "Let all systems fall!!"
Go Intel! Go Gateway! Now HP! Big Blue!
Everything Compaq, and Pentium, too!
All processors big, all processors small,
Crash away! Crash away! Crash away all!!
All the controls that planes need for their flights,
All microwaves, trains, and all traffic lights.
As I drew in my breath and was turning around,
out through the modem, he came with a bound.

He was covered with fur, and slung on his back
was a sack full of viruses, set for attack.
His eyes - how they sparked! His fingers how hairy!
As midnight approached, things now became scary.
He had a broad little face and a round little belly,
and his sack filled with viruses quivered like jelly.
He was chubby and plump, evilly grinning,
and he laughed when my hard drive stopped spinning.
A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,
soon gave me a new feeling of dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
he stopped all the clocks, then turned with a jerk.
With a twitch of his nose, and a sly little wink,
all things electronic soon went on the blink.

He zoomed from my system, to the next folks on line,
to spread mass disruption, like a creeping vine
Then I heard him exclaim, with a loud, hearty cry,
Happy Y2K to all, Kiss your PC's good-bye!
