in reply to OT: Scotland hospital hikau

Ummm... This is waaay offtopic, and I don't know if I should be answering this at all, as it has no relevance to Perl what-so-ever, but at the risk of precious karma (Did i say karma? I meant XP... Way too much time on Slashdot) I would like to express my feelings about Haiku poetry nowadays.

Haiku is too easy to write

Which leads to lots and lots of bad poetry. I mean this can be reffered as Haiku (as it fits 5-7-5 Haiku rule):

Writing some Perl poems,
    Looking for big Perlmonks fame,
        So far I only fail.

However this is not a good haiku. It is actually a terrible haiku which took me only about two minutes to write.

This explains my view on the subject in more detail, however it only reffers to joke haiku. I think it applies to all haiku.

Sorry for this offtopic. I tried to keep it as close to Perl as possible by writting a bad haiku about Perl

Everything2.com has nice stuff about haikus...

    Yeah, it is way off topic. (The node has been downgraded, but eh, oh well.) I personally don't write perl hikau / poetry, but I thought the news article was interesting. It's rare that I hear something about poetry in general on the news... (And since she sent it in an email it's partially relevant since perl often filters out spam...)
