( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Back in the day,
I was unable to say(),
I had to print() everything to find the err of my ways,
but things changed,
and now I can return(),
to the main() program of life,
where nearly everything burns,
I'm not rapping this on a mic,
I'm just writing to be free,
before I have to split(),
and perform other tasks that bore me.
So I grab my map(),
and put two and two together,
hashing into keys the locations,
that I can remember,
but I've %seen these places,
now what do I do?,
I pick a rand()om place that none of us have ever been to,
but the rules are strict,
I keep getting warnings,
something about being literal when I'm trying to be corny,
but I'm out of the ord()inary,
I'm a chr()acter in reverse(),
I know what Larry wanted,
but my linguistics are the worst,
this is freeverse,
I DESTROY()ed the English language,
I just hope I get eval()uated to true,
before I die() and then get laughed at,
but it isn't like that,
all I seek() is some closure,
I'm not an array of elements trying to get sort()ed into order,
I'm random,
I try to please for() each(),
it's like a disease,
I've thrown away all the keys(),
I write in these confinements,
it's a very strict type of squeeze.

The warnings teach me lessons,
correct my spelling and my messes,
but if Larry's crew would finish Perl6,
to my $madness I'd have methods.

    [Corion]: Meh, first round of escalations for me not wanting to fix in production what a project has mismanaged. Now another project, which eats up all the resources until end of this year wants to take that task and put it on my list of things as well.
    [Corion]: So now there will be the fun of me explaining to the project that $other_project had low priority because $project has high priority. If $project picks up the task from $other_project, they also will need to reprioritize my tasks to get that done...
    [Corion]: ... of course at the cost of something else on my list of tasks for $project, as there only is a finite amount of days until $deadline.
