Thunder and Herbs

The written words of Jenny Hackett

Hyper Text Transfer Poem

Dear server, I would like to GET
a picture of a pretty pet
You’ll find it at this URI
Oh, and here’s the host. Goodbye!

Dear client, first of all I say
200! Everything’s OK!
And here’s the date, and content type,
encoding, length and so on, pipe
this info straight into /dev/null
for all I care; do what you will.
And finally, Connection: close
(For viewing pleasure I enclose
the JPEG picture that you chose)
