    Think yourself lucky you're writing Perl;

    It could be so much worse.

    You could be writing Java,

    My god what a palaver.

    (And that's the end of my verse!:)

      Writing Perl, think yourself lucky
      It could be so much worse
      writing in Java, yuckie
      encoded in morse

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Perl programmer moan.......My fingers to the bone

    That ain't called working, where I come from ...... ;-)

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

      Actually I agree with you but it was the only rhyme I could think of. Poetic licence OK?
        Sorry, I didn't mean for my reply to be critical at all. I was just pointing it out to the less observent. I actually like it.

        The subliminal messages sent thru word phrasing, is the essence of poetry.
