Tech Poetry/Haiku

This thread will be dedicated to Tech-related poems, or poems of any sort... just tie it into something Instructables-related, somehow...

Here's my work of art!

It seems as if I'm always waiting....
waiting for the batteries to charge
waiting for the batteries to charge
and waiting for the batteries to charge again.

It's too bad I'm never waiting for the batteries to die,
there seems to be much less of that.
-Josh Gordonson

I think that I shall never seeA matrix lovely as a tree.Trees are fifty times as funAs structures a la PL/I(Which Dijkstra claims are too baroque).And SNOBOL's strings just can't compareWith all the leaves a tree may bear.And COMIT strings are just a joke.Vectors, tuples too, are nice,But haven't the impressive flairOf trees to which a LISP is heir.A LISPer's life is paradise!

By "The Great Quux" at MIT (1973) Search for "quux poetry" for more (much is now amusingly dated.)

I love this! But please, Westfw, make a poem that you can call your own! Poems are good for the soul, technological ingenuity is good for Instructables. Poems about technology is good for both you and Instructables!
