Graphite and Ice

We (#perlmonks) were discussing vroom's new geek accessory, his Handspring Visor, and arguing the merits of the "ice" translucent case vs. the "graphite" one when this sprang - completely unwanted, mind you - into my brain and through the keys.

It's not quite Perl Poetry - save that this connection can be drawn: Handspring => vroom => PerlMonks => Perl => Perl Poetry
So it all makes sense, right? <G>

With apologies to Robert Frost:

Graphite and Ice

Some say the Visor will be graphite,
Some say in ice.
From iMacs seen in good light,
I hold with those who favor graphite.
But if it must be purchased twice,
(to give one to his friend nate)
I must admit that for Visors ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Somebody hurry with that Rydalin...

Update: To prove I need the Rydalin - or a straightjacket - this poem has been bugging me all day. I finally figured out why; I skipped a line vs. the original rhyming scheme. So that's fixed now, with the insertion of line #6. <G>
