I wrote a poem for my creative writing class...



Programming

It can be confusing,
And sometimes amusing
And sometimes it seems like youíve won.
Then you look back,
And see youíve lost track
Whereís that missing semicolon?
And then there are days
When you just have to say
I canít get anything right.
The compiler is broken,
Microsoft has spoken,
Iím just giving up the fight.
Why is this code
So hard to mold?
There must be an easier way.
I canít see
Whatís happened to me
Why do I waste my days?



Anyways...

Pretty good! However, if you had to present it to anyone else in the class, you will assure your status of "biggest nerd in the class" :) .

That was actually pretty good imo, lol



The compiler is broken,


See! I knew it! I'm not the only one who blames the compiler!

This doesn't rhyme.
It's not even slant rhyme.

Fix these lines, and you have a winner.

Thanks guys :)

Yeah I was having trouble coming up with something for those lines...The teacher only gave us about 20 minutes to write the poem so I was in kind of a rush.

Maybe this is a better ending:



It's always the same
The code's too hard to tame
There must be an easier way.
I wish I could see
Whatís happened to me.
Why do I waste all my days?

I think that is really good. Most poems are people complaining about something stupid. But your complaining is actually interesting, and it actually rhymes :D
