Mac Haiku

    The point of this thread is to write Haiku about the Mac.  “What’s Haiku?” you ask?  WHAT IN THE HELL WERE YOU DOING IN ENGLISH CLASS?  Haiku is a traditional poetry form in Japan that follows the following pattern:  Three lines, with the first line having 5 sylllables, the second having 7 syllables, and the third having 5 syllables.  There are other variations of Haiku, but they ARE NOT ALLOWED!  WHY?  BECAUSE I SAID SO AND I AM PURE EVIL!®

    You can write about anything as long as it is Mac themed.  With that, I offer my first bit of Mac Haiku:

    Oh pretty iMac
    Your sex appeal is stunning.
    Gimmie gimmie NOW!

    Next?

    iBook on my desk
    Cables go all directions
    Portable? Not now.

    (I figured, if it’s in an AIM away message, there must be a topic for it! )

    The new SuperDrive
    It burns and reads DVDs
    But it won’t burn toast.

    Seventeen years now
    The Macintosh has been ‘round,
    Look to the future.

    (Yeah, it’s eighteen now, just pretend I wrote that last year. )
