    <paula>You did really well, I liked your poem, it flowed really well.</paula>

    <randy>look dawg, you wrote a good poem, you missed an ending curly brace on your for loop, but you were probably nervous, overall, I thought it was ok...ok.</randy>

    <simon>I disagree...your perl performance here is sub-standard, if you coded this way at the tryouts, you wouldn't even have made it past the syntax checker.</simon>

    use Another::Cookie_Cutter::Reality::Show;

    I guess that really says it all. I'm so happy to not know what inspired this poem (although I can guess). As a matter of fact, I have never felt so transported by poetry before.
