Bytes (an acrostic poem)

But what do you mean it won’t compile?

You told me to put that bracket there!

This makes no sense.  Why don’t you do what I told you to?

Except you are doing so and that’s why it doesn’t work?

Sometimes programming really …

Ego (an acrostic poem)

Everything was about him, and that was the long and short of it

God knew why she couldn’t get that through her diminutive pitiful mind

Of course it might have been because he never told her, but that was her problem

Curse (an acrostic poem)

Can’t believe just because I decided to have a bit of fun with this Russian chick that I’m now here

Under the full moon we made out for a while, and everything was cool till she invited me to her place

Really should have said no, but she was like too hot, so I went to her house

So that’s when it got really weird.  Her house had feet.  Chicken feet! I told her she was too freaky for me

Everything happened so quickly.  She took offense, and needless to say, now I’m the one with damn chicken feet!

So it was surprising when he stopped and told everyone to shush

The silence stretched on forever.

So long that when he said his line the audience and cast gave him an ovation.

All of Jessie’s life could be seen in the lines engraved into his face

They told of the many laughs and smiles, the tears and anger, written throughout the years  

Looking in the mirror, he reminisced a life lived hard

As he traced those wrinkles, he wondered about the upcoming Botox injection and smoothing it all over

Soul searching if he really wanted to lose that history…  Jessie left with his map intact

Write (an acrostic poem)

 

Wrestling with all the words

Recording a random assemblage of them

It is worse than a million monkeys reproducing Shakespeare

That’s when most people are ready to give up

Except you can’t.  That story needs to be told, so you…
