Right Click, Left Click, Neigh: Horses That Program

Right Click Left Click Neigh Horses That Program

(With apologies to Doreen Cronin, author of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type)

There once was a stable of horses
Who thought it was time to join forces
And protest their labor
With more than just “neigh” for
A better job, advised their sources (i.e., the cows).

The farmer said, “What good are you
Except as my wagon-pull crew?
I’ll send you to IMACS
To learn more than syntax.
If not, then it’s off to be glue!”

(Unfortunately, our classrooms are not equipped for horses, so we directed them to our online computer courses.)

No school had yet enrolled equine
In computer courses online.
They paid us in oats,
And we don’t mean to gloat,
But everything turned out just fine.

The horses got out of their jam;
They now build apps to filter spam.
So who do you turn to
If you want to learn to
Write your own computer programs?
Why, IMACS, of course!
We’re the ultimate source
To upgrade your personal RAM.
