I abused whitespace on this one :)

if ( "you are at work" ) { And: you-have-spare-time; } write "Perl poems" unless "you can't"; if ( "you can't" ){ READ: Llama; THEN: learn-Perl; THEN: program-Perl; THEN: live-Perl; THEN: breathe-Perl; LAUGH: at-python; SCOFF: PHP; } write "a script"; write "a module"; hack, hack, hack; then: one-day; on, your, resume,you, can; print +" I am Just Another Perl Hacker ";

    Excellent! This is quite enjoyable. (don't worry about abusing that whitespace-- it had it coming. whitespace is made to suffer.)

    LAUGH: at-python;

    ...because python can't become poetry like this!

    Beautiful KM, I particularly like it because it flows well. I'm not muhc in to poetry the average person can't follow.
