PowerShot Death Haiku

...

Fly away from me!
Speed through air, downward dropping.

From the "grave"

Butterfingered man!
Unfailing, I served your needs.
This is my reward?

Well, that does look a whole lot worse than what my wife did to her A10. In that case, I was able to pull the lens back to the proper position and it worked.

When something is already trashed, you don't to worry about breaking it!

Sorry, I wasn't up to putting this in haiku form.

Extra syllable
in your Haiku disappoints,
much like your Panny.

What you sell might be
another's treasure, not mine.
Good luck on Ebay.
