SF Gateway Friday Haiku

So, it’s Friday again. Another working week successfully negotiated and time to begin to wind down for the weekend and some quality classic SF reading. And just to make it clear – in case anybody was in any doubt – that there’s no form of poetry we’re unwilling to butcher in pursuit of a cheap laugh: it’s the inaugural SF Gateway Friday Haiku!

With apologies to . . . well, pretty much everyone . . .

We reach for the stars
With all the strength of our dreams
A spaceship would help

Or, maybe . . .

A parsec from Earth
Dawns nagging suspicion
I’ve left the light on

No? OK, one more try:

Skynet came online
But humans found a defence
Control alt delete

We’re very, very sorry . . .
