Summary: I don't know if this is a valid poem form or not, but I was playing about a few years back and had this. Any opions on this? It kind of links with discussion on the Select * FROM piece.

I am totally out of my depth here but I love the idea behind this.

I can't comment except to say I am in awe! I wish I could understand it!

Yes, I'd agree - I like this a lot. It's quite irreverant and I do feel paints an interesting picture of the sort of sad men who spend their lives in these programmes yet cannot get a real life. I think you may be on to something here! I wonder if you could find a home for this. Perhaps someone like Sean in the poetry seminar might know. WW mail him and ask his advice.

Hey Joanie :) Hey Darren :)

I figured it's so pointlessly obscure and needlessly comlex that it'd never have a market. I Might have to look into it.

Thanks Muchly :)
