Haiku / Escape Velocity

Tiny shuttlecraft,
Pirates attack and plunder,
heavy rockets hurt

Floating chunks of rock,
space bomb drops to soon - kaboom,
time for escape pod,

Confeds chasing Me,
their missiles like stinging flies,
flee to hyperspace

Turrets spit blue flame,
I laugh as a patrol ship,
turns to dust

Testers want new stuff,
archive is already huge,
whats another meg?

Hector bites again,
my fingers raw and bleeding,
parrot droppings smell

three in the morning,
obstinate bug still wont die,
pass the coffee, please

EV's almost done,
hopefully chicks will dig it,
I need more sleep
