in reply to Perl(Hello World)
Be you pronounced "Chah-Cham",
as in perhaps, "sha-zam"?
To you then sir or ma'am,
Hearty applause, hot damn!
I thank you h, for your reply,
May you code on, and never die(),
To voice my name, (i won't ask why),
Think "kh", which you can try.
Amongst the things that can be had,
There are those things that taste too bad,
And in disgust, but not too mad,
We say "(y)uuuchhhh!", but not too sad.
That "uch" does not rhyme with duck,
Because then it would be spelled like "yuck",
Nor does it sound like such,
As then it would not add too much.
Of that "ch", and this is key,
Think of "ich", the German "me",
The easiest example, i can see,
(If there is easier, what can it be?)
Now pronounce that "a" a doctor's "ah",
Of course that makes the syllable "cha",
Now say it twice, but like (the Indian) "tawa",
Surprisingly like saying "tada".
That is the ultimate syllable has stress,
But on the end as you may guess,
That simple "m", you must impress,
And after that you can digress.
What a splendid conversation
Where differences rate no mention
Gentile maybe is old hat
But it's none the worse for that
No axe to grind or ire to raise
What a refreshing change of pace
A waste of cycles? May be to some
But then, perhaps, they're just glumb
To raise no hackles, nor raucous laugh
No feeding the trolls "on our behalf"
You grew a smile upon my face
I welcome you to this place
May your demeanour rub off on me
To step outside of me and see
the bigger picture; all around
To smile, where once I frowned
Who gives a monkey's if I misspell
If the question's less Perl; more SQL
Vive la différence; live and let live
T'is no obligation; but a pleasure to give
Pure distraction; no purpose in mind
Your posts are a pleasure of the purest kind.
For the simple smile you brought to my day
I hope "Thank you" is all I need say
The start of some sanity?
3 didn't even come up in mind. Between 1 and 2, i like 2. It is a "rhymization" based on faulty "pronounciation." :^P
While your discussion, free and pure,
nice poetry, it is for sure,
my PerlMonks::parser, very sadly,
makes my head throb very badly.
Hmm, seems i should really have listened to my teachers and read more of those classics...
