Closing Windows by Andy Blackford

I decided to delete your files,
but you kept on running in the background.

I tried just shutting down.
I was hoping I could lose your unsaved work.

But while I long to end now,
your programme is not responding.

Your virus left my system compromised
and unprotected.

My firewall is in flames
and you tell me to restart.

I only wish I could.
