    His words are mustered sheeplike on the page
    They shuffle into neatly serried ranks
    No antick quill is sharpened to engage
    With fusty vellum fashioned from calves' flanks
    Instead the author offers grateful thanks
    To software writers he will never meet
    Their spelling hints that they are surely Yanks
    He thinks their use of color's like real neat ?

    No dismal garret witnesses his task
    Nor phthysis threatens to cut short his life
    Our ardent wordsmith wears a modern mask
    And hopes one day to save up for a wife ~
    But hark what ringtone pierces like a knife
    The stilly silence where his diphthongs bask ?
    O Sire with malware Windows is full rife
    But soft ! thy system's password we thee ask


    Prince! heed not the fraudster's wily pleading
    He will infect your harddrive with a bug
    His lies are from a script that he is reading
    My Liege please don't be taken for a mug
