April 1st is just a joke.

    April 1st is just a joke,
    Don't you get it, silly bloke,
    The whole day is so bespoke,
    April 1st is just a joke.

    Of old, the day did not exist.
    It went from 31st to April 5th.
    The master had an iron fist,
    Of old, the day did not exist.

    For history, the story's told
    When days were young and months were old,
    That some of them were still quite bold,
    For history, the story's told.

    The kalends and her three short friends,
    Came up after the last month's end,
    To Fortuna's will the four did tend,
    The kalends and her three short friends.

    As they came up, the master demanded,
    They fall in line, they were commanded,
    When they refused, they were remanded,
    As they came up, the master demanded.

    Taking heed of their fruitless fight,
    They admitted and begged the master's right,
    Judgement came after day and night,
    Taking heed of their fruitless fight.

    The three days after were reinstated,
    The anger of their master abated,
    But the leader of them who agitated,
    The three days after were reinstated.

    April 1st, still stood firm stance,
    Relegated for foolish dance,
    Having nothing, but little chance,
    April 1st, still stood firm stance.

    After forever, the master fell,
    As history itself can quite retell,
    All those outcasts, who were now well,
    After forever, the master fell.

    There was still one day, standing strong,
    Who now came back, but wasn't long.
    For those about, to sing her song,
    There was still one day, standing strong.

    April 1st, had been a fool,
    Not accepting another's rule,
    But now was standing tall and cool,
    April 1st, had been a fool.

    The story's lost to simple folk,
    Known only to those who care to poke,
    Bet happy now that i awoke,
    April 1st is just a joke.

    A little history and the inspiration for this poem. In 2002 we used Perl to develop a poetry site. Wow! 12 years of stable site availability with very little downtime. In the past 12 years, this Perl based site has served over 100,000 poets – all possible because of the great work of the Perl programming community.

    A Poem about Perl
    Perl enables the creation of programs that are beautiful
    We know that Perl's features are most powerful and suitable

    Blessing the normal programmer with mind-blowing expression
    We are so grateful Larry Wall chose the computing profession

    Thank you for over a decade of help from the Perl Monks’ ranks
    Please accept our most sincere, heartfelt thanks!



    Notes:
    2/23/2014: Updated to remove reference to other site.
    2/23/2014: Altered the poem to improve its flow.
    2/22/2014: Removed the Perl poetry code that sent the email.

    I tried to use proper syntax as much as possible but it doesn't actually execute.

    #!/usr/bin/perl study $science; open $doors,">","success.txt"; BEGIN aNewLife() and use Hard::Work; push for(;;){},"a brighter future"; do not do $meth; do not return 2, -e$x-$girlfriend; shift @yourPerspective; exit $fear;

    I considered myself as a Junk; Until here, I met a Monk; I don't have time for you,I said to a hot girl; Because now, I am in love with Perl. -Harihar Pai

    Is it Perl that i like, with the monks are her friends,
    Or is it the monks, who use Perl to their ends?

Relief at last...

    There I sat, my output muddled.
    My Perl was lame, and I, befuddled.

    My custom sort was sorting not
    as it should have, the little snot.

    A newline curse, my csv.
    That last blank line was taunting me

    with warnings, copious and crass.
    Uninitialized, MY A$$ !!!

    Then Context reared its ugly head
    to keep me from my nice warm bed.

    Those Operators laughed, connived,
    while in my skull the neurons writhed.

    A last resort, ere I did slip
    into derangement's frightful grip,

    I logged in here, and "HELP", did say.
    The Monks rode in to save the day !

    Dyslexics Untie !!!
