Hehee, very good. Let's see what I can make of 'The Road Goes Ever On and On'...

The Code Goes Ever On and On

The code goes ever on and on
Down from the shebang where't began
Now far ahead the code has gone
And I must debug if I can
Pursuing it with '% perl *dash* d'
Until I find that nasty bug
And maybe more which I don't see
And fix my code with ample luck

Okay, the ending is a bit lame, but the road/code similarity was so inviting that I just couldn't resist :).
Oh, and yes, I do admire The Lord of the Rings (though I abhor the film). It has shaped my thinking like no other book and I read it at least twice a year. So, this poem is in no way intended as any kind of (vicious) parody.

    And now I'll try with Bon Jovi - "Always"

    Larry Wall is coding
    But you can't see his bugs
    Nothing but some munged bits
    That his old script, coughed up

    Short and too the point...I'll hide now
