The h2g2 Poem

1 Conversation


This voice is spooky, said the mouse,

It made me go and lock the house.

It frighteningly sounds like Hal.

Who's that then, asked I, pray, do tell.

It's a computer voice, she said,

And this one does sound just as bad.

She has a point, said EMR

Computer-esque it sounds from far.

Amiga's sound chip I recall,

Roymondo said, to top it all.

I second that, the Moonhogg said,

Sounds like the Commodore I had.

If I was to make a choice,

I'd vote for the other voice;

And if you need more evidence:

The female voice lacks confidence.

I like it, Skankyrich chimed in,

Let's vote and see which one will win.

It's weird but cute, commented Sho.

Oh well, I asked. So now I know.
