I had a burst of inspiration this morning and composed five Java haikus
before coming in to work. Think of them as an early Xmas present. If any of
you come up with any more, I'd love to see them -- maybe I'll set up a web
page for them all.

     I got an Object
     I was sure it was a Point

     Garbage collection
     The unused objects are gone --
     Knew you wouldn't mind

     Peers come from some secret place
     So mysterious

     Server wants linefeeds
     But println just sends CR
     The sockets deadlock

     "Java For Dummies"
     Yee Haw! Are we coding yet?!
     When's our IPO?

Please forward to everyone you know,
but it would be terribly rude to remove my name.
