||Good King Wenceslas
Sing-tested while taking my daughter carol-singing, much to her dischuff. For Piglet.
Perl White [ alternatives requested ]
Good keen hacker Larry Wall
Got it working, called it Perl
And threw the kitchen sink in
Loudly hummed the Net that night
Helping Larry get it right
And work it summat cru-u-el.
Perl will make each program step
Three lines make a poor-man's grep
Seven sides a task can lunch
For this iceberg packs its punch
Nine-tenths under wa-a-ter.
Small-tool bigots will despise
But to their outraged surprise
That's why Perl's a winner
Gentle syshack, understand
With this chainsaw in your hand
Every task is ma-atch-wood.
