A SysAdmin's lot is not a happy one

There is a new Win32 virus doing the rounds, which sends email purporting to be a UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email, AKA SPAM) complaint. Two of my sites have already been added to RBLs by trigger-happy admins.

You who are about to be deluged in crud, we salute you:

When a cracker’s not engaged in his employment
or maturing his felonious little code
his capacity for innocent enjoyment
is just as great as any other toad.

Our feelings we with difficulty smother
when administory duty’s to be done
taking one consideration with another
a SysAdmin’s lot is not a happy one.
When administory duty’s to be done, to be done
a SysAdmin’s lot is not a happy one.

When the enterprising scripter’s not a-scripting
When the black-hat isn’t occupied in crime
He loves to hear the little brook a-gurgling
And listen to the merry village chime

When the cracker’s finished 0wn3r1ng on your mother
He loves to lie a-basking in the sun
Taking one consideration with another
A SysAdmin’s lot is not a happy one
When administory duty’s to be done, to be done
A SysAdmin’s lot is not a happy one

When the hard-disk shows no sign of where the data went
We nobly bid all future hope farewell
When the juvenile delinquent to the clink went
He hung his mother’s picture in his cell
When the h4x0r’s finished wiping out our data
He buys a rattle for his little son
Taking one consideration with another
A SysAdmin’s lot is not a happy one
When administory duty’s to be done, to be done
A SysAdmin’s lot is not a happy one

Sung to the original of this tune.
