in reply to Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes 3 (King James Version) 1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under +the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to + pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time + to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to +dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a +time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cas +t away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a tim +e to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of pea +ce.

You are confusing Ecclesiastes with a song based on the verses, but your poetry is still nice. :) So ++ to you!

    My interpretation of the scripture:

    #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; foreach (@_) { if ($_->isa('thing')) { $_->season(); } foreach (purposeUnderHeaven() ) { time_to($_); } } sub purposeUnderHeaven { return [ 'be born', 'die', 'plant', 'pluck up that which is planted', 'kill', 'heal', 'break down', 'build up', 'weep', 'laugh', 'mourn', 'dance', 'cast away stones', 'gather stones together', 'embrace', 'refrain from embracing', 'get', 'lose', 'keep', 'cast away', 'rend', 'sew', 'keep silence', 'speak', 'love', 'hate', 'war', 'peace' ]; } sub time_to { do $_; }
