More practices

# More practice Dawn
# We are building some stamina
# I guess you have enough Python ‘under your fingers’
# To move onto learning about how programming really works

\tThe lovely world
with logic so firmly planted
cannot discern \nthe needs of love
nor comprehend passion from intuition
and requires an explanation
\n\t\twhere there is none.

# Obviously the symbols too would count 🙂
