Opens up an older wound

Well, I think what I actually do is write a sentence 13 syllables long lol. There was a guy on Friendster who started a haiku thread and his haikus were sublime!

I wish others would participate :(

Haiku is good fun
My first attempt made you smile
That's gotta be good

.. and

A five seven five
not a seven five seven
keeps you in the groove

.... and as you had a suspicion that I might be part Cyborg (in the Pi thread) I
have do one in my native tongue.

1 0 1 1
1 1 1 0 1 1
1 1 1 0

Of course this must be read out in a Robotic 'Bender' voice from Futurama!
:D

The above statements are direct quotes (emphasis added by editor) of other-than-flesh-and-blood origin. Only a positronic brain conceives of using color-coded panels representing numerical values to reflect the constant used to calculate the circumference of a circle and call that art! And then does a binary haiku in his 'native language'!

Case rested.

Just as expected
A cyborg reduces life
To binary code

But the 'borg was made
Just as its code was written
Just like DNA

A brand new building
Displays New Art, (DNA)
The answer is there

Take another look
The pattern of the windows
Staring in your face
