Perl Motivation

I was coding away in perl one morning when my 4yr old daughter asked me what I was doing. I said, "I am typing code into the computer to write a program."

She said, "I have some code too," and insisted I type it for her on the screen (she doesn't type yet):

Jewel, painting feet.
Painting pinkies with sparkles;
Painting middle toe.
Painting fingers but they're lost,
stones fell off.

See, perl really is poetry!
