The Millennium Bug

A new era is dawning and a new creature stirs,
It will wake up and stretch as the new year occurs,
It’s arrival is dreaded throughout all the world’s lands,
For it holds our technology tight in it’s hands,
Is it winged, is it horned or does it move like a slug,
No one knows what to expect from the Millenium Bug.

In the rush for supplies, people scamper to buy,
It’s a race against time but one can only try,
Fill the bathtub with water, stock up on preserves,
If you don’t prepare now you’ll get what you deserve,
Buy lots of gas, get your bomb shelters dug,
And blame the hysteria on the Millenium Bug.

The fires of panic are fed by the media storm,
Puffed up hype from Reporters is becoming the norm,
As uncertainty grows all the prices inflate,
And they’ll grow even higher close to the date,
Retailers who treat the consumers as mugs,
Blame the rip off on the Millenium Bug.

As the people buy up big due to the sales pitch,
Over a scheme centred around a computer glitch,
Better upgrade your system and cash in your chips,
Better keep off the planes and ocean bound ships,
The world’s being bullied, as if by a thug,
By a scarecrow called the Millenium Bug.

One thing is for sure, guaranteed without hitch,
At the centre of the issue someone’s getting rich,
Don’t be fools for them friends, don’t believe all you hear,
Please don’t be bound up by accepting the fear,
And when you hear all the hype, give your shoulders a shrug,
And spray Baygon all over the Millenium Bug!


AUTHORS NOTE:
I don’t really know what will happen as the new century starts. No one does I think. We’ll just have to wait and see. But I am pretty sure that the Y2K Bug business is getting blown out of all proportion and somewhere, somehow, person or persons are getting rich out of all the hype and panic. I’ve heard the same things as everbody else in regard to the effects of the bug, and the general consencus from the “experts” is that their may be some disruption to the power supply in the short term, but nothing major or life threatening will come of it. Now don’t get me wrong saints, I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with that statement because I am not an “expert”, I say it probably would’nt hurt to top up the gas bottles in case of power disruption. By all means make a few allowances for unforseen circumstances just to be safe, but don’t get involved with the doomsday, survivalist hype that is going around and spend your nest egg on bomb shelters and pickled eggs. You know you could even ask the Lord for guidance in the matter. He’ll give you better advice than I can.

AFTERWORD: (1 Jan 2000)
