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.
