    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!

    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 !!!

    Happy Monkday!!
    You’ve been here 1 thrilling year.

    Is it really a whole year since I joined the Monastery? I’m so glad I did, and so very grateful to all the monks whose enthusiasm and dedication make PerlMonks the special place it is.

    So this seems like a good opportunity to post a rather long poem I wrote to meet the challenge of finding rhymes for all the monastic levels, from Initiate to Pope.

    Enjoy! :-)
