    Excellent! This is quite enjoyable. (don't worry about abusing that whitespace-- it had it coming. whitespace is made to suffer.)

    LAUGH: at-python;

    ...because python can't become poetry like this!

    Beautiful KM, I particularly like it because it flows well. I'm not muhc in to poetry the average person can't follow.
