12 horsepower February 8, 2006

Here’s a poem by Claude E. Shannon, written during
a visit to his former student, Ivan E. Sutherland, in
Pittsburgh.

Higgledy Piggledy
Ivan E. Sutherland
Built a huge cockroach
12 horsepower clout

But the roach
Waxing vengeful
From previous roach genocide
Hexapodiacally stomped Ivan out
