basho - source - built with processing

A software toy (as in I screwed up and couldn't get an actual game done) in honor of the famous Haiku poet Matsu Basho. As he wrote:
old pond
a frog jumps
the sound of water
Or as another translation (Allen Ginsberg's) put it:
Th'old pond
A frog jumps in,
Kerplunk!
The haiku for my toy is more like
the springy yoyo
bashes the three sticky frogs
flies fly overhead
alternate translation:
stupid programmer
skill rusty from lack of use
...make an API!
