Haiku: Pac-Man

Yesterday Masaya Nakamura, the founder of Namco, died aged 91. His company was responsible for Pac-Man and launching the video game revolution. Living by the British seaside as a teenager at the time, I recall this bring installed in the arcades in 1980 and it, along with the subsequent arcade games, played a significant role in alleviating the boredom the early 80s. By way of tribute to the “Grandfather of Pac-Man”, I offer my haiku:

~ Pac-Man ~

Chasing through the maze

Blinky, Pinky, Inky, Clyde

Always got their man
