I'm a Believer, improved

There were requests from what I heard for
this node to be added to poetry.
I didn't think that node was worth that and made
another one which I like more.

"I'm a Perl Monk" to the tune of "I'm a Believer" by The Monkees.

<Verse 1>
I used to think I would never grasp this Perl
all that code looked like Chinese to me
I did almost give up
so close to quitting Vi
oh, why didn't I just stay with C...

<chorus 1>
Now I've become a Monk
and it feels like I'm dreaming
Regex's are
not a problem for me
I'm a Monk (hey!)
And I wouldn't have been
without the CeeBee

<Verse 2>
I hang out there daily, it's a holy place
filled with people of diversity
you can ask your questions
watch, read, learn and see
you will soon write great Perl Code in Vi

<chorus 2>
Yeah I'm a Perl Monk (hey!)
I wear my robe proudly
Writing great code
Now almost daily
And if I just
will keep on learning
Someday I will be a Saint, you'll see...

    That's pretty damn cool. Now let's make the audio version and maybe a music video to go with it.
