I Write Poetry in Python

I enjoy songwriting. Here are the lyrics to a silly, fun song I wrote a couple of months ago.

I Write Poetry in Python by Catherine Ray

I have no life and I can prove it mathematically.
I judge your human worth using a spectrum of rationality
I know vector calculus but I can’t remember how to do long division.
When I compile, my waiting ritual resembles superstition.
I know how to integrate a chicken and take the derivative of water,
I had to pick just one, Asimov ‘s my favorite author.
And, I, I write poetry in Python.

You put the period outside the quotes! You’re not quoting the end of the sentence
What the heck do english majors know, anyway. Correction fail, I demand repentance!
I’ve gutted and rebuilt my laptop 5 times since I last changed the oil in my crappy car.
Yet, I’ll bet you I can’t name a single television star.
‘Cause I, I write poetry in Python.

I’ve got to bring a jacket with me, in the middle of summer,
’cause there’s a wind-chill factor in the lab, my priority is comfort
The three most dangerous things in the world are a programmer with a soldering iron,
a hardware engineer with a software patch,
and a user with an idea.
So, I, I just write poetry in Python.
