In the old days

when our heads were invaded by 

Demons or dybbuks or djinns,

We called the exorcist

or, for us agnostics, the shrink.

Now, in the age of technology,

What with AI and laptops,

We face a new menace, hacking.

Something or someone is

in our computer,

rooting around, wrecking havoc

or, at least, threatening to do so.

We call on McAfee or 

Apple or Dell to help.

Using their magic, they

exorcise the demon

and wall off against the next one.

The remedy is different. 

The experience is the same.
