I spit rhymes fast,
I'm a poet and a rapper,
street linguistics I've mastered,
but then I stumbled onto Perl,
and became formality's disaster,
it's a catastrophe,
trying to write Perl poetry,
trying to write something sane within Wall's linguistic mastery.
Guttman, you're in the game,
chromatic's logic keeps me sane,
the love on PerlMonks keeps me doing it all again...
keeping everything in context,
I almost lost it before I bought this,
there's more than one way to keep things,
too many ways keep me from knowing how I want them.
Remember reading about references,
back in the day,
merlyn's book with Gilligan crushed my understanding in all ways,
then it clicked,
and it all came together,
those references to Gilligan,
is what I'll forever remember,
newbs need to read,
and write mistakes constantly,
to get past their insanity,
they must write crappy code and help others,
even if they doubt their certainty.
To give up is failure,
so just show up with code,
like you're an anonymonk high on crack,
and be proud knowing,
you're just another Perl hacker.
