Zaurus Poem I Wrote
« on: May 07, 2006, 10:25:03 pm »
<<This is a free verse poem I wrote for school - It's not very good, just thought I'd show you guys...>>



Sharp Zaurus

Any other mobile tool is a joke

Your 416 Mhz Intel XScale Processsor is like whipped cream, so zippy

Full Qtopia environment powering your user interface

 Full-size high-resolution VGA screen

Beautifully oriented slide-down QWERTY keyboard

To call you a computer would be an understatement

Your integrated 6 GB Hard Drive is a Pocket PC killer itself

Why, oh why Sharp, did you cease US production?

Tux the Linux penguin is crying tears of defeat

What was once treasured as a brilliant tool is now looked down on as a flash in the pan

Your Zaurii powered the population looking for more

Than Palm or Pocket PC could offer

Your integrated 802.11 WiFi is what we need in this day and age

To stop such a great product would be like letting the town's food source rot!

You have smitten so many appreciative consumers!

Microsoft's empire expands because you choose to shut down operations!!!

 Why, oh why!

The Zaurus left a legacy behind

And all you can do is cancel it!

Come back, Zaurus! Come back!

Wow! I thougt Zaurians were only creative tech geeks, but now we have a creative and literary (poetic) geek too.

Since I got such a nice response last time, (I was very surprised to see my name on tyrannozaurus.com!) Anyways, I thought I'd share this one too. It's a more structured Italian Sonnet with a rhyming scheme. (Oh and in case you're wondering, I wrote two poems on the Zaurus because the poems needed to be on one topic, and I was really into the Z at the time...)

The Zaurus wipes the competitors out
Asking the question;  "What's Palm talking about?"
Bright, brilliant VGA screen
Makes the Zaurus a beauty queen
A tiny 'lil Linux to fit in your palm
Really, these Zaurii are the bomb

Dual CF and SD slot
You can add so much memory, like it or not
But you won't find these dream machines stateside, at all
Subpar sales led North American production to fall
But look no further, than ebay.com
For a sweet little Sharp treat that'll fit in your palm.
Or get it imported, take it from me
Using the Zaurus will fill you with glee!

- Matt Helliwell

Hope you like that one! (And if you don't, I promise I'm not gonna post any more!)
