Help create a new art-form. Answered

A recent recall to an old BBC thread (which has been running for six years!) reminded me that some people here like Haiku.

You don't know haiku?
A simple form of poem
Of ancient Japan.

First, five syllables,
Then seven, then five again
In only three lines.

There are variations on the theme (a personal favourite is the SciFaiku ), so I thought, why not start a new form - the Mak-u.

Try and stick to the three lines/17 syllable format, but with allowances for creativity (as per SciFaiku), and each one to include a reference, however obscure or vague, to the making process (tools, ways of making things...).

Birth of an art-form,
Copyleft and open-source,
On Instructables.

Have a go, see what you can do.

The old and the young,
Together, fixing the world
With a hot-glue gun

haikus are easy
but sometimes they don't make sense

Hmm... a few nights ago, I had a dream, and in it, I was revealed the true beauty of art. (I'm serious) I'm actually questioning its dreamliness, because its so deep... Oh well, my subconsious is a genius ;P
Anyway, a pseudo-quote from the dream "art isn't the thing hung on the wall of a museam, its the process of creating [the painting]". Although, it sounded so much more poetic before I wrote it out... thoughts do that to you...

Anyway, here we go:
Soldering
Tip touches metal
Uh-oh, the chip is broken
It was too damn hot
