Year-Old Haiku

More cobwebby stuff from my inbox: two haiku that I scribbled in my boredom during a long, stupid day of systems testing. I basically had to process a transaction on my system, and then telnet in to a unix server and run cycles to validate whether the transactions had pulled data from the correct tables. Yuck.

These were probably influenced pretty heavily by The Tale of Genji, which I was re-reading at the time.

Date: 10/2/2007.

Autumn rain, cloaklike,
Free of prejudice and spite,
Shrouds all -- none escapes.

Bleak white digits dance
Bottom-to-top on black screen.
-System error- (Death)
