Old Hull, Quebec. August 14, 2006.
Hold the magic, Prospero;
Spill me no more spells;
Riddle me no more ree, Pops;
Wish me no more wells!
I hacked your Wizard's Handbook;
Cracked the code of the hex;
Gonna chalk myself a circle now
And conjure up some sex!
I searched the net for a real cool troll
With a cavern by the sea.
Now I'm moving in with Caliban,
So say goodbye to me!
We plan to link our drives, without
Benefit of clergy.
If the program has a virus, though,
I'll need your thaumaturgy.
So don't hang up your wand, Dad.
Forgive me for my sin;
'Cause home's the only back-up where
They have to take you in.
