Programming Is A Poetry For Our Time

I was reading through the poetry blog of Mark Hibbet… Hey Hey 16k for those of you who know it, and those who don’t go and check it out now..

Anyway, I cam across this gem;

Programming Is A Poetry For Our Time.

Take a complicated idea
And make the underlying point of it clear
Compress it down to fit in memory
Now tell me what’s the difference
Between programming and poetry?

Programming is a poetry for our time
It’s a poetry for our time

I’ve snippet the rest for copyright reasons, but you can check it out here
