Coding poetry.

I was thinking about that: can one write a poem/short-story using the syntax of it's favorite programming language? Have you tried ?

That's Funny. But i mean things like using fonctions instead of verbs, objects to describe something ...

I've seen some attempts at making poetry in code, but none of them that I've seen were particularly interesting. It seemed like pretty much just regular poetry but in le ebin pseudocode. If there's a professional poet who does this sorta thing I'd be very interested.

I've done something similar to this myself, except I did it in pseudo-logic.
