haCk the herald, angels sing

21 Dec

The grandest breach of common sense

An ethereal scheme, simple yet condensed

Mary’s become a divine transport medium

Virgin turned operating system

Hacked by the owner Himself

What divine disregard for the precepts of self! 

Ctrl C and Ctrl P exerted on a human being

Copied from heaven, pasted in Mary – so unseen!

Divine file installed in a pristine damsel

Her womb: Destination folder of a heavenly parcel

Pregnancy it is, never to become corrupt

Not even cyclic redundancy dare interrupt

So let the angels swarm and sing

Of the programming of such a thing:

An outright evasion of human Firewall

Slithering through system scan and all

A program file not of an open source

Unimagined source code, of course

And the Saviour’s become the input data

– the soft copy of the Christmas saga


The Gospel according to Computer; the Christmas story from a hacker’s perspective hence the use of such jargon as soft copy, source code, Firewall, cyclic redundancy, destination folder etc.

    this is telling that same ancient, but eternal Fact in modern [computer] language,
    so permit me to ‘hack’ into this comment.
    may God hack into those who have not believed that they may not lack eternal life.
