There once was a curious person,
Who wanted learn of recursion.

Control+C does not work for me

shebang shebang
my eyes hurt from typing
shebang shebang
my mind hurts from thinking
shebang shebang
my butt hurts from sitting
shebang shebang
my heart hurts shes leaving
shebang shebang
I'm coding instead of sleeping
shebang shebang

Also for those who may not know what's a shebang (!#)

Begin your day, feels okay,
Click-clack, fix a bug,
const and var, review a PR,
And deploy the front-end at the very end.

Time to go home and disappear,
[INSERT YOUR LIFE HERE]

Why is this broken?
Maybe I'll run it again?
Well, why did that work?

Stuff doesn't work out for me
This is not a haiku

Classes, Abstractions, and DRY - things that made me look clever
Closures, Curry, and Composition - things that made my whole life better

I will open the black box
It's written in C
