William Butler Bloody Yeats

William Butler Bloody Yeats

Is one of those poets who nobody heats.

Who doesn’t know his works and deats

Will answer to me and my closest meats.

I sits me down and contempleats

The woebegonne yearnings of Willie B. Yeats,

And how my heart exhilareats!

My soul is bestirred! My anguish abeats!

Though yes he had eccentric treats

(Like talking with spirits in mystical steats),

That wack-job W. Bee-loud Yeats

Is the hugest of poetry heavyweats.

Whose body of work intoxiceats —

Whose lyric sublimity quenches and seats —

Whose slightest line annihileats

Like Widening, Blood-dimmed, What Beast Yeats?

(Don’t confuse him with Keats.

Who had cravings for sweats.)

An Error Has Occurred

An error has occurred.

On that you have my word.

Whatever you wanted, it couldn’t be found.

Enjoy this unbearable erroring sound.

Whatever you meant, it was not understood.

Complaining about it’ll do you no good.

Whatever you’re working on couldn’t be saved.

Perhaps from now on you’ll be better behaved.

Whatever you’re trying to do ain’t permitted.

This program has now unexpectedly quitted.

A second error occurred.

There will probably be a third.

Your document’s damaged and can’t be repaired.

It’s what you deserve, as if anyone cared.

Your input is empty. Your path is invalid.

Now sample this morsel of motherboard salad.

You haven’t sufficient resources or space.

That idiot grin just abandoned your face.

Your volume is dirty. Your drive is defunct.

This lesson on failures is over. You flunked.

Some additional errors occurred.

As you may or may not’ve inferred.

ALERT you have triggered a major malfunction

Consigning your data to total extunction.

ALERT your malfunction encountered a glitch.

Your disk is now blank as a son of a bitch.

ATTENTION your glitch catastrophically froze.

The system has run out of hardware to hose.

ATTENTION your freeze has now suffered a crash

And burned your machine into cinders and ash.

An unknown error occurred.

And lo, the heavens stirred.
