As ever with my poetry/obfu it's not clear if it's obfu as it's
just unpleasant to read, and it's not really poetry either.. ho hum
What the hell, it's Christmas:

#!/usr/bin/perl ($_,@_)=<DATA>;s/s//;s/^/On /;$~=$_;for$i(0..11){if($i<3){$_=(qw/ firs +t second third/)[$i]}else{$_=$_[$i];s/\s.*?$//g;s/ve$/f/;s/$/th/}$l=$~;$l=~s/tw +elve/$_/ ;print"\n$l";$i==1 and $_[0]=~s/^/and /;for($j=$i;$j>=0;){print"$_[$j- +-]"}}$/= 0;print"\nTotal:\n",map{($i,$_)=($_+1,$_[$_]);do{s/a //g;s/e(\W)/es$1/ +g}if/^a/ ;s/^\w+/($#_-$i)*$i/e;/\d+/;$/+=$&;$_}0..11;print'-'x30,"\n$/ non-geek + gifts\n" __END__ the twelve days of christmas, my true love gave to me a Partridge in a pear tree two Turtle Doves three French Hens four Calling Birds five Golden Rings six Geese A-laying seven Swans A-swimming eight Maids A-milking nine Ladies Dancing ten Lords A-leaping eleven Pipers Piping twelve Drummers Drumming
