Hippo-by-potamus
Heliogabalus
Worshiped a bolide and
Married five wives.

Bawdy proclivities,
Hyperactivities,
Prompted his courtiers to
Vent him with knives.

Peter Blinn Curious Notions

Quaxity quuxity,
Backus's BNF
Drives a preprocessor,
Generates code.

Parsing is specified
Metasyntactically;
Writing it's easy, but
reading, I'm snowed.

Paul Dourish Stinky

Havelly pavelly,
Czechoslovakia's
Federal president
Finally quit.

Now they'll be joining the
Geopolitical
Global community,
Lickety split.
