More Haiku

OK, I won't pretend I wrote any of these - they are drifting around the Interweb like...drifty things. Just imagine if your computer was programmed by a poet:

Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.

Everything is gone;
Your life's work has been destroyed.
Squeeze trigger (yes/no)?

Windows 2000 crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.

A file that big?
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

Errors have occurred.
We won't tell you where or why.
Lazy programmers.

Login incorrect.
Only perfect spellers may
enter this system.

This site has been moved.
We'd tell you where, but then we'd
have to delete you.

ABORTED effort:
Close all that you have.
You ask way too much.

First snow, then silence.
This thousand dollar screen dies
so beautifully.

With searching comes loss
and the presence of absence:
"My Novel" not found.

The Tao that is seen
Is not the true Tao, until
You bring fresh toner.

The Web site you seek
cannot be located but
endless others exist

Yesterday it worked
Today it is not working
Windows is like that

To have no errors
Would be life without meaning
No struggle, no joy

No keyboard present
Hit F1 to continue
Zen engineering?

Having been erased,
The document you're seeking
Must now be retyped.

Rather than a beep
Or a rude error message,
These words: "File not found."

Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared
Screen. Mind. Both are blank

KB-

Very funny!

You've become quite the connoisseur of haiku poetry since I last visited. Is this the next hot thing in blogging?

It appears to be catching on.

UAE bloggers to be into Haiku right now are:
Keefieboy
MamaDuck
Grumpy Goat
Dengrous Boy
M&J Adventures

I believe that Buj Al Arab may even be going to have a go!

..something of relevance and perhaps even consoling after the loss you experienced on your system:
