February is the cruelest month, at least for ex-Sun Microsystems chief executive Jonathan Schwartz, after he signed off from his role at the company with a haiku on Twitter.
The former head-honcho must have been in a wistful mood to choose such a unique, and somewhat melancholic, way to leave his role. Who knows, perhaps it could set off a wave of poetic scribbling in the rest of the IT sector:
Apple's iPad launch: New device for you / really just a big iPod Touch / you'll buy it anyway.
Google threatens to leave China: We said don't be evil / China does not agree with us though/ so we'll be off then.
Bet you never knew Sneak could haiku with the best of them did you?
However, while Sneak was impressed with Schwartz's effort, it felt something in the style of Private Eye's in-house poet may have been more fitting:
So, farewell then, Jonathan Schwartz,
Former CEO of Sun.
Your goodbye in a haiku,
But now I fear
The sun has set
On your career,
At least for now.
