A unix poem
The following poem appeared recently in INFOCUS magazine. The
original authors were Fred Bremmer and Steve Kroese of Calvin
College & Seminary of Grand Rapids, MI.

A poll conducted among INFOCUS readers had established "waka" as the
proper pronunciation for the angle-bracket characters () and  ,
though some readers held out resolutely for "norkies." The text of
the poem follows:

	() !*''#
	^"`$$-
	!*=@$_
	%*() ~#4
	&[]../
	|{,,SYSTEM HALTED

The poem can only be appreciated by reading it aloud, to wit:

         Waka waka bang splat tick tick hash,
         Caret quote back-tick dollar dollar dash,
         Bang splat equal at dollar under-score,
         Percent splat waka waka tilde number four,
         Ampersand bracket bracket dot dot slash,
         Vertical-bar curly-bracket comma comma CRASH.
