Threaded my good man
You don't half spout some rubbish
Best regards from myself.

:spel me.

There should only be 5 syllables in the last line.

I tried to write a
Haiku, but got bored so gave
Up too early

There was a young man from Japan
Who's limericks never would scan
When told it was so
He said, yes I know
But I make it a rule to fit as many words into the last line as I possibly can.

There was a young fellow named Nick
Whose limericks weren't any good:
They didn't rhyme
And they ended too soon.

Some good IT related ones going round the office last week...


Out of memory.
We wish to hold everything!
But still we cannot.

Rather than beep
Or a rude error message:
These words: "File Not Found".

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

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot
Order will return.

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

The code was willing!
It considered your request,
But the chips were weak.

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

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

No keyboard present
Hit F1 to continue
Zen engineering?

Website has been moved
We'd tell you where, but then we'd
Have to delete you.

The web site you seek
Cannot be located but
Countless more exist.

Aborted effort:
Close all that you have worked on.
You ask way too much.

Windows XP crashed.
I am the blue screen of death.
No one hears your screams.

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

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

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.

Logon incorrect!
Only perfect spellers may
Enter this system!

Stay the patient course.
Of little worth is your ire.
The network is down.

A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.

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

Seeing my great fault
Through darkening blue windows
I begin again.

You step in the stream,
But the water has moved on.
This page is not here.

Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.

10,000 Things
How long do any persist?
Explorer is gone.

Server: poor response
Not quick enough for browser
Time out, plum blossom.

This site uses frames
And yet your browser does not.
One of these will change.

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

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

There was a young vampire called Mabel
Who's periods were incredibly stable
Each month at full moon
She'd reach down with a spoon
And drink herself under the table

Not haiku but a more entertaining style

Ah, BI... I miss him :(

Before they made him, they broke the mould :)

And I don't say that about many people.

So he was made from a broken mould?

He'd be all mangly.

Plagiarism is so
Bad for to steal their hard work
Is an awful crime!

So haiku is cool?
You don't see me penning it.
They don't even rhyme.

Haiku is
More foreign rubbish that
Polutes CUK now

Nicking all our poetry.
Stupid foreign crap.
