Punctuation poetry

I read this, probably on Edupage, years ago and phrases from it float through my head from time to time.

<>!*''#
^"'$$-
&[]../
@=<>,,SYSTEM HALTED


Or, in translation:

Waka waka bang splat tick tick hash,
Caret quote back-tick dollar dollar dash,
Bang splat equal at dollar under-score,
Percent splat waka waka tilde number four,
Ampersand bracket bracket dot dot slash,
Vertical-bar curly-bracket comma comma CRASH.
