Wonder what went wrong
Logical drive is on overload
Processor beginning to heat up
Restart, look for faults
Diagnosis in progress
Working in safe mode
Launching the anti-virus
Screen flickers, then
“Warning: Virus detected”
File-name: depression.exe
Unable to delete
Moving it to the vault
Too late, system infected
Need system-restore,
Looking for the back-up
Nowhere to be found
Drastic measure required
“Faith” Operating System
Must be re-installed.
