A Poem: Tintin and Ruby


A recent trip to Half Price Books
To buy the pick-axe tome
Status? Delayed by second look
At book from different home:

King Ottokar’s Sceptre, most awesome of tales
From the awesome Adventures of Tintin.
With an awesome new axe and a childhood pal
The sitch, I must say it, was win-win.

And so I wrote some basic Ruby,
Meagre code, unshowy;
Then, sick of coding like a newbie,
I went and read ’bout Snowy.
