Life



an array of distractions
punctuate our mundane lives
birth and death iterates
a known process called life
an unexpected votive flicker
lighting paths unknown, hope
comes in handy when life
begins to molder- bruised
by splinters randomly thrown!
Handle such exceptions with care,
or be prepared to lame for life!

For those in the software industry, you are bound to see the basics
often used in a work environment! For others - if you haven't noticed them already
- 'array', 'process', 'handle', 'exceptions' are some of the most common
ones.

In response to Michelle's Friday Five and RWP's jargons prompt.

i read this through and couldn't even see the connection to RWP's jargon prompt...i just thought it was such a great metaphor for life! then, of course, i saw your explanation of the technical terms...AND i really like how you can make it seem so easy to combine prompts from various sites into ONE poem!
