Haiku: From the Finale Mailing List: Windows

  1. Chaos reigns within.
    Reflect, repent, and reboot.
    Order shall return.
  2. Program aborting:
    Close all that you have worked on.
    You ask far too much.
  3. Windows NT crashed.
    I am the Blue Screen of Death.
    No one hears your screams.
  4. Yesterday it worked.
    Today it is not working.
    Windows is like that.
  5. Your file was so big.
    It might be very useful.
    But now it is gone.
  6. A crash reduces
    your expensive computer
    to a simple stone.
  7. Three things are certain:
    Death, taxes and lost data.
    Guess which has occurred?
  8. Out of memory.
    We wish to hold the whole sky,
    But we never will.
  9. Having been erased,
    The document you’re seeking
    must now be retyped.
  10. Serious error.
    All shortcuts have disappeared.
    Screen. Mind. Both are blank
