The exercise:

Write two haiku about: the virus.

Everybody in the house is sick with colds at the moment. We had a good run through January and February. It was bound to end eventually...

Sneaky, it moves in
Without your permission to
Hijack replicators.

morganna, love it

mine:

the virus

he opened and logged
on his favourite program
it crashed - data lost


someone coughed near her,
she sneezed into a tissue
too late, virus caught

@Morganna: beautiful and scientific at the same time! Great work :)

@DragonflyOracle: I think I prefer your second haiku today, though it's a close contest. The ease of transmission of a transmission is nicely captured.

@Marc: I'm pretty sure that zero lines of zero syllables isn't a haiku :-P

The virus
If The Virus is
No superhero, what does
"Fight for your life" mean?

Every nanobot
Craves life. Viral machines, too
Tiny to see, kill.

Marc said...

Morganna - nice one :)

Dragonfly - yeah, that second one. Stupid contagiousness... huh, didn't expect that to actually be a word.

Greg - zero... I'll haiku you, you bastard :P

I like both of yours,
though the first best thanks to the
funny tale it tells
