AP CS Poems, Fall 2017!

Period 2

Coding can be hard
So make that int a double
To avoid Trouble
Go to G-H-S
We are better than the rest
Code to relieve stress

Programing is like a cool breeze
It blows in your face
Until your brain freezes

Java C++
Languages of the future
Everyone should learn

You could code a game
You could even save the world
It’s all up to you

When writing short code
It’s best not to think about
How to finish it

Period 4 

Coding is the best
It is a combination
Of cool math and art
I think something’s wrong
But I didn’t make mistakes
Broken computer
Oh wait, never mind
I made a silly error
My bad, I was wrong

Writing these three lines
Is far more difficult than
Writing a program

Why would you throw balls
File not found exceptions
Are more fun to throw

Computer science
Can be really fun and hard
An art I can do

I talked with Yoda:
“challenging, programming is.”
“not my favorite”

Programming is fun
It is also very hard
I recommend it

Computer science,
It is very fun to code!
Everyone should try.

Programming is the bestest thing
I always come in and have a fling
Learning with my friends – oh yay!
I can always count on it to make my day!
Computers I love them so much
When I see a keyboard I have to touch
So programming is so mighty fine
Not learning to program would be a crime!

Programming Poems from AP CS, Dec 2015  Quiz!
Most are Haiku’s!

Programming is fun
But sometimes it can be hard
Mostly I like it

Help me Mr. Berg
Tell me what a while loop does
Oops, that’s infinite

Oh, the projects we do are frightful
But Gabe and Mr. B are so delightful
And since our programs won’t go
Let us code, let us code, let us code

Public Class Haiku
System dot out dot print ln()
Sixty two errors

CS is so cool
Squids are the best animal
So hyped for Star Wars

I can write java
Sometimes it is confusing

I love programming
Programming is so much fun
Let’s all make programs

Programming is cool
Programming is a lifestyle
Programming is all

I lost my folder
It has big project inside
Tonight I don’t sleep

Pete’s code is awesome
It is elegant, simple
And super easy

Five syllables here
Seven more syllables here
Are you happy now?

I try to debug
There were thirty little bugs
And not there’re fifty

System out println
A sloppy typist’s best friend
Why won’t it compile?

I look at the clock
It is two in the morning
I can’t stop coding

Programming is fun
It will bring a bright future
Praise the code masters!

Poetry is dumb
But it is easier than java
Counting syllables is hard
I should write a program that
Counts syllables
I clearly can’t write haikus
Or code

Code is like pizza
Pizza will always be good
Pizza and code good

Programming is hard
Not like, really, super hard
But it’s not easy

Coding hurts my head
Coding sometimes helps my head
Coding is coding

Fall 2014 Song Project’s Extra Verses

Mr. Bergquist : October 8, 2014 10:18 pm : Comic of the ...

Some of the Excellent Extra Verses from Fall 2014 AP CS’s Project 1: Song to enjoy…  (note: these were fairly randomly selected while Mr. Bergquist was grading)

Coding is just a big social commentary
// is a sign you’ve been visited by the comment fairy

Reducing redundancy and repetition
Means more methods and perception

Codes can do many amazing things
Beyond than just what you can think

Put a class in a room,
Call that classroom.
Throwing a pass while learning code,
Call that passcode.
My keys landed on the board,
Call that keyboard.

Played fantasy football last night
But my boolean decisions weren’t a delight

Not tryna go off the topic of CS
But Skyline’s going down faster than the Pony Express

That line about Ms. Martin doesn’t make any sense
She’s not even my teacher – now this rap’s on the fence
Also what does the word ‘vile’ even mean
I would never use it in a rap better check your screen
For your rapping fails get off script bro
Cause I know we can’t take much mo’
‘Vile’ doesn’t even rhyme with complies my guys
This rap has just been compromised.

This poem is such a masterpiece
I’m DjGrasp and I say peace!

If you are confused by this crazy computer
I gotchu I will be your genius tutor

I code so fast that I finish before class ends
Watch me now as my code skills begin to ascend

All I do is program every night and day
I program all my tunes; don’t need a deejay

I’m killing the game when I write in Java
My code isn’t tame, it’ll burn you like lava

Now I’m my ending my program, so it’s time to go
Time to get featured on the British Variety Show

I’m so good I can code with my toe
For shizzle my nizzle you already know

Look at my code only twelve lines long
You’re the human race and I’ve wrecked you like King Kong

When I finish this code, I’ll hit the plus and the guy
If I type more it won’t do nothin’, so now I’ll say bye-bye

I’m too good at coding I don’t need help
When you see my code you jump up and yelp

I tap out things that I vaguely understand
I’ll catch myself up, ‘fore things get out of hand

Look at my code it got no redundancy
Bow down as I compile triumphantly

My code is super duper mega ultra good
Cause chips and bytes and cookies be my food

This here is a rap about Java, what a novel idea!
When this hits the radio, you’ll be all, “mama mia!”

Yes I am so good at coding
I finish all my work while you guys are still loading

Code so hard, I’m givin’ you a virus
Code so hard, you’ll go back to papyrus!
I code in the morning and I code at night
So now that I code it’s such a fine sight

I’ve got 99 problems but coding ain’t one
Take a seat while you learn from the master son

You cannot brace yourself for this code
Because you can’t process this load

ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.
