Ganz manchmal, wenn so etwas wie Romantik in mir aufflackert, dann lese ich Gedichte, zum Beispiel jenes mit dem Titel “” von Charlie Harvey.

sub b($){1;}
sub is(){1;}

BEGIN{($thinking,$acting and $fighting);
sleep $later if not kill $you, ($first, $the_powerful)}#…

uc(our $planet);is; not $machine and not $factory;
(our $planet)=($fragile, $delicate and $alive);
(our $lives)=($on=>’knife_edge’);

uc(my $life);is; not $meant; for (@sale and
$i_am){}; not $a{“demographic”} or $a{“market segment”};
$i_will; not $lie_back and $let_you; kill $people for ($profit);

$corporate_masters=’power, guns, influence';

$fight; while()
{$live{‘free’} or die ‘trying';}

for ($love){};
for ($anger){};
for ($fun){};
for ($fucks_sake)
{$stand_up &b $counted; join $the, @resistance };

our $planet=>is_being_slowly_strangled;

until ($planet=>belongs=>(2*(each %person)) and not $corporate_masters){
not $Shell; not $Esso; not ($BAE or $halliburton);
(our $lives);not $viable;
not (our $species); last;

$world=>ends unless ($you and $me
and not $them and $their_power{‘control world’});

$people=>suffer until (
and not reverse);

$life=>suffer if not our $communities->{police->{selves}};

$art=>sucks while ($art = $commodity); for (@consumption){not $expression};

foreach ($act{‘resistance’}) { $our_hope++ and $their_power–; }
die ($corporate_masters . $you . ” won’t stop us.\n”)

Wenn man das Ganze nicht versteht, muss man es nur dem Perl-Interpreter geben, auf warnings und Zeug verzichten, dann gibt es als Output sogar sowas wie eine Gedicht-Interpretation:

power, guns, influence won’t stop us.

Mir wird ganz warm ums Herz!
