    Programming Haikus (post your own)

    I came across a thread on this website about another programmer's frustration and it looked almost poetic, and others thought the same thing as well.

    So it gave me the idea to start a thread where people can make up some programming Haikus and post them.

    I'll start:

    My mind has gone blank
    Why can't I solve this problem
    Please kickstart my brain

    I am on a roll
    Code flowing like a river
    ~Crash~! forgot to save...

    Tuning out the world
    I am in my own world now
    I am such a geek

    It's 4 in the morn
    Haven't slept in three days
    I really should bathe

    A variation of the popular "recursion. n. 1. see recursion" that has an end condition and thus is proper recursion:
    Code:
    recursion. n. 1
        if you still do not get it,
            see recursion. 1

    while(!super_bored++);

    Don't pronounce the symbols, just the words that are more than one character long. Oh, and main()-recursion is of course only valid in C.
    Code:
    int main(int argc,
        char *argv[]) { printf("bottle "
            "#%d\n", argc--); main(argc-1); }
    Okay, so that was really silly . . .

    No, wait, I have it. An encryption program!
    Code:
    int main() { int value;
        while((value = getchar()) != -1) putchar(
            ~value); puts("Goodbye."); }
    It depends on EOF being -1, but still.

    It's a trend! programmershaiku.com

    Hmm, a spin-off of Martin Luthur King, Jr.:
    Code:
    main cannot recur;
        only others can do that.
    except, of course, C.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    The middle line is 8 syllables.

    "But still I de-ref-er-enced it"

    Just drop the "but" and I'd have to say it is an extremely clever haiku.
