artist/designer Ishac Bertran has this really cool project called code {poems}: a compilation (ha!) of compilable poems in code.

Inspired by this, this afternoon I began to dabble in a bit of my own code poetry.

class World:
     def __str__(self):
          return "this is the way the world ends"

def ends(self):
     return ["whimper"]

def main():
     world = World()

for i in range(4):
     print world

if "bang" not in world.ends():
     print "not with a bang"

if "whimper" in world.ends():
     print "but with a whimper"

if __name__ == "__main__":
     main()

to run, download source and run python theHollowMen.py.
repo here.
more to come.
