Sunday Poetry Session “Black Perl”

Sky’s the Limit

Larry Wall, Black Perl.

.

.

BEFOREHAND: close door, each window & exit; wait until time.

open spellbook, study, read (scan, select, tell us);

write it, print the hex while each watches,

reverse “its length”, write again;

kill spiders, pop them, chop, split, kill them.

unlink arms, shift, wait & listen (listening, wait),

sort the flock (then, warn “the goats” & kill “the sheep”);

kill them, dump qualms, shift moralities,

values aside, each one;

die sheep, die, reverse the system

you accept (reject, respect);

next step,

kill next sacrifice, each sacrifice,

wait, redo ritual until “all the spirits are pleased”;

do it (“as they say”).

do it(*everyone***must***participate***in***forbidden**s*e*x*).

return last victim; package body;

exit crypt (time, times & “half a time”) & close it,

select (quickly) & warn your next victim;

AFTERWORDS: tell nobody.

wait, wait until time;

wait until next year, next decade;

sleep, sleep, die yourself and

die at last

 

 

Perl poetry is poetry written in Perl code, a powerful dynamic programming language used for graphics and network programming, system administration, as well as finance and bioinformatics. In 1998, its creator, Larry Wall, referred to it as “the duct tape that holds the Internet together.””Black Perl” is both a poem and a program, running on Perl 3.
