FORTRAN ode


Or do I CALL you Fortran now,
the verse of numerical analysts?
O VAX, where art thou?
Have you fallen off programmers' top lists?
No longer for BLOCK heads,
you now look rather cool.
Once an ugly ducking,
you can actually be read.
Let you be taught in school!
Ignore programmers' chuckling!
