Thursday 13: Computer haiku


I already mentioned computer haiku once in a previous post. Today I’m listing a few of my favourite computer haiku. Programmers or who ever comes up with error messages might want to take a look and get some inspiration.


Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
Suzie Wagner


Login incorrect.
Only perfect spellers may
enter this system.
Jason Axley

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

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

No keyboard present
Hit F1 to continue
Zen engineering?
Jim Griffith

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

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

For a new PC,
Center of my universe,
I abandon all.
Bob Ruby II

Server’s poor response
Not quick enough for browser.
Timed out, plum blossom.
Rik Jespersen

wind catches lily
scatt’ring petals to the wind:
segmentation fault
Nick Sweeney

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

Seeing my great fault
Through darkening blue windows
I begin again

Printer not ready.
Could be a fatal error.
Have a pen handy?
Pat Davis
