C++ Shanty

January 13, 2021 2:29 PM

The whole sea shanty thing going around is charming and someone made a joke about slack and that got me thinking about going to college for computer science and wanting to spend my life on computers, and here we are, a short shanty about being careful what you wish for.


Slack's having downtime
So come, me hearties
Let's talk of old days of
eye sea queue

Hand-coding websites
And long LAN parties
And drinking a barrel of
mountain dew

Oh ho the dreams we dreamt
Of lives spent at our computers
Oh ho the tears we've wept
For having our dreams come true

This is truly spectacular, and accurate on all counts.

You could be famous if you wanted to be, you know.

Yeah, this is fantastic. That refrain cuts deep, for most professions, I suspect. Be careful what you wish for, indeed.
