There are programs that will output its source code to standard output and do nothing else. They also access no external output. This type of program is known as a quine, and is a common code challenge.
You are to write a program/poem that is both a quine and a sonnet.
- When saying lines, it is recommended that you only say all characters except for: whitespace and
,()_"'. This is flexible depending on the language though.
- Iambic Pentameter means 10 syllables, starting unstressed, and then alternating between stressed and unstressed. This is optional, but will mean more votes.
- Comments are discouraged, especially to complete rhymes (although comments are very much encouraged if they can be incorporated with the code in the poem in a way that produces dramatic effect.)
- Cruft is discouraged.
Voters, use the four above guidelines when voting. This is a popularity contest, so the program with the most votes wins.
