Haskell haikus

1st prize in 'Original code poems' in the "Waikato ACM Code Poetry Contest 2006":

Haskell is concise

Functional well-typed and neat

It is like Haiku

By FMota, preserved in Lambdabot:

Haskell's cryptic form

is natural to some folks

and so is Haiku's

Monad haikus

From Monad laws#But it doesn't look exactly like an "associative law"...:

Monad axioms:
Kleisli composition forms
a category.

From #haskell

empty list error:

this elegant program dies

so very quickly
less time debugging

more time downloading your brain

to the type system
type checker: "You fool!

What you request makes no sense -

rethink your bad code."

=== From haskell-cafe By Thomas Hartman:

You come for magic

silver bullets slaying bugs...

It is only code!
