I am posting this from a friends computer
My laptop went belly-up a week ago
You have to believe me – it is genuinely true 🙁
I lost out on a final hint fest spree
So for me and for NASA it has ended in catastrophe!
Just before the fail I wrote a little poem I was about to post…
The dreaded 9B
It has finally arrived – the dreaded 9 B
We know what it is, we hear ourselves say
It’s ternary converted to alpha you see
But it didn’t quite work that way!
Over time we were lost in our thinking
Our prospects were looking bleak
The silence from Harry was deafening
He wasn’t giving the hints that we seek
And souls that got lost in the zero-one-two myst
They sure gave Harry a drilling
‘Twas unkind to say that he was a sadist
He held back ’cause the leaderboard wasn’t filling
And then all too soon we were near the end
Many had solved it – finding it easy no doubt
For others a solution may be just round the bend
Now that the hints are trickling out
Seeking to gain the last few points
And trying to save our grace
It’s a scramble to fix up the joints
Or end up with two pools in our face
Now if you are due to come back next year
Refrain from giving Harry ‘a flea in the ear’
Instead you should give him a heart-felt cheer
Because all of his hard work may help further a career
Thanks for a good time Harry.
Hope to be back next year.7th January 2020 at 2:38 pm #45151HarryKeymaster
Love it, fantastic effort. Harry Baker would be proud!
