My Computer Wizard - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

A hairy, freckled, frilly lizard
was, underneath it all, a wizard.
He lived inside my monitor
don't ask me what he lived there for.

It seems that once this frilly lizard
because he is a hairy wizard
would with the devil make a pact
and in the end my patience cracked.

For years I had to thus endure
the wizard and there was no cure.
It often made my outlook fail
so I decided I would mail

an e-mail to the world's own end
where not one wizard has a friend
One night when I could hear him snore
I opened up the little door

and snatched the wizard with my nails
(you gotta watch those pointed tails) .
Attached him, hit the button SEND
my troubles all came to an end.
