"Mary had a riddle lamb, brain-tease was hard as stone!"

Scratch that thing,
It's the name of this being!

Not only a furry creature,
But the sweetest of nature!

Damn horrible intruder,
Get out of my computer!

Surely ain't emblem of pluck,
At most it may bring luck!

  • $\begingroup$ I also though about rabbits, but can't think of a computer intruder that's based on rabbits $\endgroup$ – Andrew Smith Apr 12 '15 at 17:44
  • $\begingroup$ @leoll2 added my second guess $\endgroup$ – Andrew Smith Apr 12 '15 at 17:51
  • $\begingroup$ Rabbit is correct! About interpretation, a couple of lines aren't as intended: "Scratch that thing"="Rub it", which sounds like rabbit. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fork_bomb is also known as rabbit! $\endgroup$ – leoll2 Apr 12 '15 at 17:56

I think it is

A hare (similar to a rabbit)

Scratch that thing, It's the name of this being!

I guess it's common to scratch you head (hair -- hare)

Not only a furry creature, But the sweetest of nature!

Rabbits (hares) are furry and sweet

Damn horrible intruder, Get out of my computer!

Ever get a piece of hair stuck in your keyboard? or even in your pc?

Surely ain't emblem of pluck, At most it may bring luck!

pluck is something you can do to hair (play on words- hare), and rabbit's feet are lucky

It's

a CAT (again!)

Scratch that thing,
It's the name of this being!

A cat can scratch, or you might scratch one behind its ears. The letters C, A, T are contained in the word "scratch".

Not only a furry creature,
But the sweetest of nature!

Cats are furry creatures, and (at least some of them) have sweet natures.

Damn horrible intruder,
Get out of my computer!

Is there a type of virus called a cat?

Surely ain't emblem of pluck,

A lion is sometimes used as a symbol of courage.

At most it may bring luck!

Cats, especially black ones, are seen as bringing luck.

Maybe the title should have contained the word "pray"? ;-)

You will have to pray!
riddle - pray you can find the word!
Riddle... pray that this is the last one

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Good answer! I've just found in Google that black cats bring luck in some cultures (in mine they bring bad luck). By the way, I'm sorry but "cat" isn't the right answer! $\endgroup$ – leoll2 Apr 12 '15 at 17:37
  • $\begingroup$ @leoll2 The other idea I had was "horse" - would that be worth posting too? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Apr 12 '15 at 17:39

Not only a furry creature, But the sweetest of nature!

bees are a hairy creature and collect pollen from nature

Damn horrible intruder, Get out of my computer!

Surely ain't emblem of pluck

could be plucking the stinger out

At most it may bring luck!

in some countries around the world a bee sting is thought to bring good luck.....
