Geek Tragedy

Coding Assembly, Peeking and Poking,
Paging and Polling, Seeking but no Queen.

All the while, merely beguiled
That structure and style would be compiled,

Never a warning, Never an error
Forever to debug this heartfelt terror.

Turning and turning those binary digits
Yearning and yearning for intellectual Gidgets.

Lurching and lurching through each tree node
Searching and searching for female code,

Understanding inside(tm), never having to hide
from my thoughts, I can lift up my chin.

Though all the Kings resources and all the Kings Zen
This loops infinitely, again and again.

Here is one I just wrote.

code:

#!/usr/bin/perl

use Existence;
use Vehicle::Human qw(@lifetime &Incarnate);
use HeartFelt::Caution;

my @HeartsDesires = ('Intellectual', 'Emotional', 'Empathetic', 'Coder', 'Writer', 'Philosopher', 'Scientist', 'Spiritual');
my @Interests = ('Computers', 'Philosophy', 'Physics', 'Cognitive Science', 'Algorithms', 'Movies', 'Cuddling', 'Kissing');


for each $moment (@lifetime){

if( defined($female) ){

$ThingsInCommon = 0;
$Hopes = 0;

if( open(FEMALE, "<$female") ){

while($chat = <FEMALE> ){

foreach $interest (@interests){

if( $chat =~ m/$interest/){

$ThingsInCommon ++;
}
}

foreach $desire (@HeartsDesires){

if( $chat =~ m/$desire/ ){

$Hopes++;
}
}
}

if ( $ThingsInCommon > 5 ){

if ( $Hopes == 8 ){

$FoundLove++;
while( BiDirectionalInterest == TRUE) {

enjoy_time(FEMALE);
}

} else {

dash($Hopes);
close(FEMALE);

}

} else {

close(FEMALE);
}
}
}
}

if($FoundLove){

die "Content\n";

} else {

die $! ;
}

Wow...

Talent, and too much time on your hands. What an interesting end product they produce.

Thank you. You are all too kind.

It is amazing what intellectual isolation can drive a man to.

Well, hopefully you found someplace to ease the intellectual isolation (i.e. here.) That said, I like the second even more than the first.

There's a place called "Flowery Branch" in Georgia? Freaky....

Hey, cool poems... Very inspiring.... I've only written one that only had a semi-technical beginning:

12 a.m. midnight
High on coffee and laplace transforms
And analyzing bode plots until I've had enough
Ups and Downs to last me my childhood

Yup... that's the extent of it. Your stuff's hella cool, though. Do you have a webpage of more stuff?

off topic but answering the above question:

of course there's a place called flowery branch in georgia. it's only about 45 minutes from atlanta. actually, it's the "home of the atlanta falcons" and they're proud of it (it's on the water tower.) it's up by lake lanier. of course, the only reason i know is that's where the Ga Tech sailing club keeps all our boats.

anyway... someone can now bring us back on topic.

WAY COOL!!!!
I love the first one, except that the ryme scheme was a little off in the third couplet... hide - chin... perhaps woking in ride, tide, or died in stead might make the rymme work better, but don't mess with the meaning, "cuz it ROCKS."

The second one reminds me of some code I say on another BB, except that the other code was an ode to a lady... wish I could remeber wh I saw it.

The change in rhyme scheme is referred to as the bridge, supported by the initial rhyme in the first line of the third couplet. This is done as a way to end the incessant rythm and to allow the poem to find its graceful end. The pentameter then goes from
identical in both lines to a rythmic switch saving some beats for the beat greedy last stanza. Then again.. it was meant to be read aloud to a rythm, as opposed to inside ones head.
