More poems from the menu bars of software applications on my Mac (after #1 and before #5). The first is arranged identically to the menu, the second has alternative breaks, while the third breaks up words and punctuates liberally. Submitted by Gabriel Smy.

This one is amazing. The repetitive rhyme reminds me of the repetitive rhythm of Night Train. An electronic Gerard Manley Hopkins.
