    The Power Mac fades

    Little hope is left except

    Son of Power Four

    Big blue the saviour

    Motorola falls behind

    At MacWorld Boston

    And some haikus not necessarily related to power 4...


    The members there are insane

    Run off while you can

    Mac OS Jaguar

    The system never crashes

    It eats lots of RAM

    Legacy hardware

    It will not work on Jaguar

    Steve Jobs hates SCSI

    Microsoft Windows

    It steals your private info

    Bill Gates owns your soul

    MacNN hates us

    They never install v.B.

    Why MacNN why?

    Threads get moved from wrong forums

    Dumb posters complain


    Works fine and dandy for me

    What did you do wrong?

    Such effusive praise

    For my meagre offering

    I am overcome.

    In lines one and three

    That nickname fits perfectly.

    It could not pass by.

    Belle is supposing

    Love lives are decomposing.

    I beg to differ.
