A friend of mine wrote a twitter bot that spits out random bits of RFCs, somewhat inspired by horse_ebooks, and I suggested it would be nice if it wrote haiku, so now it does. It's not very good at it, but I found this almost poem in the feed:

Townson makes it has
the switch functions
02 Elgamal public key

And now I really want to write a haiku including the words "elgamal public key" -- pity "exchange" doesn't fit that into a 7-syllable line.

Some of the more intentional poetry it's written:

to authenticate the
already done our paper we have
home address found

It's almost poignant. Or Yoda crossed with Glinda the good witch, whatever.

What dictionary has syllable counts for words like "Elgamal"? Your friend must be doing some kind of phonetic breakdown? Sounds complicated!
