by Floppy diks, as they say in India. of Like Game of Thrones.
Yes, single-sided,
single-density, even.
But for the poems,

this whole site would fit
on a five and a quarter
inch floppy diskette.

Though admittedly
not quite so old to have lived
in a flaccid sleeve,

it did indeed first
travel on three and a half
inches of plastic.

An ancient art form,
an ancient new medium.
It's relative, but

A quarter of a
century is very old
indeed for the web.

Congratulations
are very much in order
for this Bad Haiku.
