"Beware the GB-wock, my son!
The X-bar nodes, the words that trace!
Beware the CFG, and shun
The nativist base case!"
He took his (char *) sword in hand;
Long time the lexeme foe he sought--
So rested he by the depth-first tree,
And stood awhile in thought.
And, as in dative thought he stood,
The GB-wock, with eyes of flame,
Came priming through the dualist wood,
And compiled as it came!
One two! One two! And through and through
The (char *) blade went neural net!
He left it dead, and with its HEAD
He went truth-tabling back.
"And hast thou slain the GB-wock?
Come to my arms, my big-O boy!
O BST! NP! Tarski!"
He dir-graphed in his joy.
'Twas lemma, and the Turing Test
Did parse and recurse in the stack;
All merge sort were the qualias
And the SYN-SEM-STRUC hack.
