( #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.
