Angels – Write My Programs In SAS


In the office late.
Will the system computate or break?
‘cos no-one knows
the places where SAS goes,
where it strays and roves.
‘n’ I have been told
its translator raises costs ten-fold!
So while I try to keep my cred,
stop it clogging up my head.
Yeah, I’d rather I were dead, than
write my programs in SAS.

It runs for hours but ends with some exception,
fault or miscalculation,
ERROR or simply wrong.
So on my knees I fall,
can no-one here save me?
I know that SAS will break me.
What is a MACRO CALL? Why do they make me,
write all my programs in SAS?

bin above a week
since my code broke down with a NULL-C3.
I looked it up.
Now I have to write another work-around!
And so the program grows,
what I’ve built? I don’t know!
Will it run? Will it end?
Why not use COBOL instead?

It runs for hours but ends with some exception,
fault or miscalculation,
ERROR or simply wrong.
So on my knees I fall,
can no-one here save me?
I know that SAS will break me.
What is a FORMAT for? Why do they make me,
wWrite all my programs in SAS?

SOLO

It runs for hours but ends with some exception,
fault or miscalculation,
ERROR or simply wrong.
So on my knees I fall,
no-one here can save me!
I know that SAS will break me.
Why’s debugging such a chore? Why do they make me,
write all my programs in SAS?
