June 5, 2009 - Because, really, password security IS important

A co-worker expressed much frustration
So I altered the configuration
Of the management system.
I’m glad to assist ‘im.
He showed his sincere admiration.

For security’s part of the game.
At least that’s what the sysadmins claim.
They had thought it was fine
I had passwords of nine,
But their admin codes all were the same.

June 4, 2009 - It happens every January

We were sure we were gonna catch heck
When the CEO called up our tech.
Wouldn’t everyone like a
Job where all the FICA
Is maxed on the new year’s first check?

June 3, 2009 - Unclear on the concept

Users can’t use a borrowed credential,
Even if the task’s really essential.
Those in HR will tell.
It’s a rule they know well
For a lot of their stuff’s confidential.

So we called up the HR director.
“She can log in as me. I respect her.”
She had written the rule,
But enforcement is dual?
So its writer’s its biggest objector.

June 2, 2009 - There's always SOMEBODY listening

The app manager’s acting so tough.
“They’re all numbskulls and don’t know their stuff!”
What would be real cool?
What would make our fish drool?
“Here’s our auditor. His name is F L U F.”

June 1, 2009 - Hey, they've gotta save money somewhere, right?

The new PC’s all gave me a shock.
They won’t boot though they come straight from stock.
“There’s a CPU missing!”
The vendor’s tech’s hissing.
I answered, “Dude, you’ve got a rock!”
