To the melody of the classic filk song “God Lives on Terra.” Parody lyrics written in 1996.
It’s wonderful. But then, I love filk. And I also love flexible data structures.
The lyrics start
I was taught assembler in my second year of school.
It’s kinda like construction work — with a toothpick for a tool.
So when I made my senior year, I threw my code away,
And learned the way to program that I still prefer today.
Now, some folks on the Internet put their faith in C++.
They swear that it’s so powerful, it’s what God used for us.
And maybe it lets mortals dredge their objects from the C.
But I think that explains why only God can make a tree.
