in reply to Perl Haiku

It compiles, but it's not really a haiku. (5-7-5)

Please accept my appologies -- I read it incorrectly.

    read with me:

    Perl Ob fu sca tion
    Art of the un read a ble
    print Perl done for fun

    Its a stretch, but it works.

      Not a stretch - that's how I read it initially...

      For the record, a haiku has other forms besides 5-7-5

        Ok, I stand corrected (and humbled).

        I read it thusly:

        Perl Equals Open Paren Obfuscation
        q;Art of the unreadable;Close Paren;
        print :"Perl sub(zero) done for fun"

        What other patterns
        make a haiku a haiku?
        I know not the rules.
