Submission for Python Limmerick Contest

P: n/a
My submission for P.L.C.
A mathematican named van Rossum
went hunting for opossum
he could not find one
all eaten by Python
to her his language he named as a blossum

wish me luck

A tuple, a dict, and a list,
And whitespace which mus'n't be missed.
Imported together,
And stirred with a feather,
Yields a language whose name must be hissed!

At the prompt, when I type "import this", it
Invites me to be more excplicit:
But in five lines of verse
One's obliged to be terse,
So the limerick form is illicit!

No pointers, no templates, no streams,
These are things found only in bad dreams,
Because Explicit is "with it", and static typing dismiss-ed

"The Best language has been".joined() at the seams!

"The First Python function ever written"
(takes place in the Garden of Eden"

Guido sayeth "I will write def foo():"
"Hmm, I could use an import, or two",
Satan said, in a whirl, "Why not write it in Perl?",
and the second function ever written - def foo_you():
