in thread leaving friend

You're right. Perl Poetry should be two things, IMHO: 1) Perl and 2) Poetry. Unfortunately, too often the submissions that come here, although very good, only meet one of these conditions.

I write a bit of poetry myself, and I think I'm a reasonably good Perl programmer (this point is debatable-- there's so much more I could learn!) But my attempts at writing a poem that scans both in English and in Perl have always left me unsatisfied. I'm amazed that anyone actually can get it right.

You did. That's why you got my (and a lot of other people's) ++. Hope you do another. Take care, hope you and your friend stay in touch.

    Well, I was surprised how easy it finally was to write that one. I first thought it'd be much harder.

    And I'm sure, me and my friend will stay in touch.
