First prompts are silent.
Subsequent prompts loud and clear.
Now all prompts are heard.

Poem from R&D staff?
Yes. Rhyming sonnets were shakespeare-like complex;
they wrote Japanese haiku, showed as above.

The SAS R&D staff should complete some paper work in defects system before changing a code. They use informal descriptive language(HAIKUUU!) in the early stage. Chris Hemedinger, a senior software engineer at SAS, collected some haikus in his blog to show the humor side of SAS R&D staff. It’s interesting to cite one of the most famous haikus by Matsuo Bashō for comparison:

Old pond
a frog jumps
the sound of water
