Journal Journal: Rant away!

OK, so there's a slashdot journal feature that I never noticed... Interesting. I'm going to take this opportunity to rant, and give everyone else another place to tell me that I incorrectly counted the syllables of a haiku, or that I suck at making limericks, or that they won't be impressed until I start writing in some other way. And, yes, I know that my 'haiku' would be called 'senryu' by some, and that calling them haiku will piss the anal retentive off (incidentally, the anal retentive are usually already pissed off, which is why I don't care). The fact of the matter is, the term haiku is about twenty times more recognizable as what you'd call a senryu, and my job isn't the impossible task of educating the slashdot populace. My job is to make light of serious situations, make serious of light situations, and possibly provoke thought by funneling a perspective on an issue through the filter of a short poem written by a geek.
