5 Perlimericks

A team of aspiring Perlistas
Would type till their fingers got blisters.
     But without their espresso,
     The code was a mess, so
They had to take turns as baristas.
A Perl coder sheepdog named Shep,
As a herder acquired a rep —
     An array he did keep
     Full of cows, goats, and sheep,
Then he gathered the sheep using grep.
Said the Scribe, as his postings increased,
“An obsession? No, not in the least!
     With my time I’m restrictive.
     I know it’s addictive.”
At the last report, he was a Priest...
An old coder’s wit (not a flash of it!)
Rejected my Perl (the whole stash of it).
     He’d been coding all day
     An associative array,
So I said, “Well, you’ve sure made a hash of it!”
Said the boss, “Java’s pure and sublime;
To use anything else is a crime.”
     But a rebel named Earl
     Said “I much prefer Perl” —
And his project was finished on time.
