Just Saying

I recently sent the following email:

This is just to say
I have put the program
into the directory
U:\TIS-Access\SAS Programs\HRSA Grant
and modified the program to use the file
All Surveys – Round One.txt
in the same directory.

And then I thought of Jon.

And then I thought of Hoke.

And then I thought of this:

I have deleted
the data
that were in
the shared drive

and which
you were probably
for analysis.

Forgive me–
with a single command,
so many ones
become zeroes.

And so I thought I’d share it.

  1. Brian, that reminds me of the old Windows haikus (http://ushostnet.com/host/windows.htm), such as:

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

    And it reminds me of an email I recently sent my girlfriend that was a perfectly mundane email in the form of 4 haiku poems. Despite the odd formating, she did not seem to notice. I was torn between happiness at the smoothness of my poems, on the one hand, and the lack of attention to my brilliance by my girlfriend, on the other.
