    Hrm, it didn't quite post the way I wanted it to, sorry about the bad formatting. Says its maintained by me, but there's nowhere to change the content.
      Whoop, I guess it worked. Nebbermind.

    does this not work any more, or do I have something wrong with my perl install? lacrymology@Optimus:~$ ./listen syntax error at ./listen line 26, near "not," Execution of ./listen aborted due to compilation errors.
      It doesn't work for me on:
      This is perl, v5.8.9 built for x86_64-linux

      I get the same error as you do. Your perl install is probably fine. This poem may never have compiled. It does compile when I delete the comma after "not".
