Ancient Egyptians, plagued by plague,
Still scribbled figures on papyrus.
(Illnesses wear us down and yet
Communication's ever tireless)
Conquering eastward, was it war
Or just a cold that killed Great Cyrus?
Likewise, perhaps infection kept
Marconi steady at his wireless.
Modern machines (internally
with each new year appear more gyrous)
Swiftly complex travail perform.
If good heath wishes yet inspire us
Hopefully your computer will
Soon overcome its latest virus.
