    A Perl beard is not usually well formatted.
    It just grows from lack of care
    late working hours give dirty collars
    n modest clothes are best to wear
    When you feel the bugs are scary,
    weird enough to pull your hair
    take a break , you big Perl guy
    sleep on it and come back fair.
    Perls got debug, n mods that Capture
    every bit n trace out there
    rest assured, there aint no language
    that's got so much built-in flair
Upvotes n Downvotes

    Upvotes and Downvotes, arent they just frills
    lacking all context; reputation's sigils
    if you while working, come across pain
    turn to the perlmonks, there's so much to gain

    some might be dandy, some might be plain
    some might just tease you , to check once again
    all in good sport then, we newbies must take
    the acts of good valor, the dear monks display
get PerlED

    I found a new verb called perled
    it means make the most of your *nix world
    keeps you looking classy with text
    makes your code sassy n best
    and for the help the monks freely give
    try to donate your time or a triv'
    and e'en if you dont want to spend
    at least vote on good posts a plent'.

    There was this client from Notre Dame
    who asked to code up something lame
    I looked at him with weary eyes
    and asked him if that's all heíll buy

    He said its just for fun n games
    his actual work didnít need ITs pain
    But yet he feels the webís a rule
    n every business needs this tool

    I quickly sketched what came to mind
    He liked it and said ill pay u fine
    I put my zeal into the work
    lest later on he changed the perk

    But sad that day he said to me
    Ron that project..lets wait n see
    i glibly said ok thats fine
    and tried to simply pass the time

    I prayed to God oh please help me
    This delay does not work with me
    Please work on him to change his mind
    Give me the solace of cash n kind

    Few days passed and client replied
    Hey Ron the TV crews are nigh
    i need that simple site of mine
    so might as well get a page out fine

    I clapped my hands in earnest glee
    and wrote markup with a JS reel
    and as the project drew to a close
    i mused in silence and repose

    But still the bucks took time to brew
    while i did the logo, perl and hue
    and since the cheque was post dated true
    i sat and cried a big boo hoo.

    what i love about strings is they are so mutable
    what i love about TT is it makes HTML so usable
    what i love about perlbrew is it relieves me of variables
    what i love about Moose is it makes those large projects workable
    what i love about perl is it starts ugly but ends up beautiful

    You donít get to..
    #Facebook you don't get to 100 million friends without making a few enemies
    #CPAN you dont get to 140,458 modules without seeing a little baloney
    #Cpanm you donít get to become our fav util without the brewís company
    #Perl you donít get to be called the dead lang until you finish of us zombies
    and #Perl 6- you dont get to be the defacto Perl , without giving a DATE of RELEASE :D
    woot woot.

    Note -thanks to everyone on perlmonks and twitter for their sincere advice, which inspired me to write this piece.

I wrote my car in Perl

    I wrote my car in Perl, my project for today,
    I started with use gas, and proceeded on my way,
    But a friend who's eco-friendly, and perhaps a bit eccentric,
    Changed it to require, and Acme::clean::electric,
    And that's when things got strange, and all about was hectic,
    Though, searching through the code i was not able to detect it.

    I wrote my bed in Perl, to sleep upon my code,
    I dreampt a fairy came, and turned me into a toad,
    I hopped upon my pillow, bellowing, "oh gribbit!"
    "If my princess frog arrives, the kiss, but who will give it?"
    I woke up in a sweat, and after just a minute,
    I fixed a nasty bug, and tons of others in it.

    I wrote my house in Perl, to save a bit of rent,
    I still don't have the money, nor an idea where it went,
    But on that fateful day, when my friend came and arrived,
    He found so many bugs, we're amazed that i survived,
    Well, there was a patch or two, without a thought contrived,
    That worked in the short term, but was longevity deprived.

    And that's my life of code, which worked until a friend,
    Or unconscious source, showed me what had to bend,
    I might just try again, but plan before i do,
    To use others' advice, (and check on CPAN too,)
    For though it's great homemade, and i do adore home brew,
    It usually is better, to sit and think things through.

    I'd code without my eyes, if i could still see.
    I'd code with no soul, but that wouldn't be me.

    I'd code without my head, but how would i think?
    I'd code with no mouth, but how would i drink?

    I'd code without my ears, but who'd hear me shout?
    I code with no hair, i already pulled it out.

    I'd code without my hands, but my digits would fall,
    I'd make up with my toes, but i don't have the gall.

    I'd code without my fingers, but keys must be pressed,
    I could peck with my nose, who would have guessed?

    I could code with no knees, there's some room to bend,
    I could try with no legs, and start a short trend.

    I might code with my feet, just don't jump to conclusions,
    My clone could take over, but that'd lead to confusion.

    I'd code without my heart, no...no, i just couldn't.
