The following poem was written collaboratively after readers of "INFOCUS"
argued to consensus that the angle-bracket characters should be called
"waka." The text of the poem follows. You'll note that it uses both the
"hash" and "number" labels for "#"

!*= -at- $_

The poem can only be appreciated by reading it aloud, to wit:

*Waka waka bang splat tick tick hash,
Caret quote back-tick dollar dollar dash,
Bang splat equal at dollar underscore,
Percent splat waka waka tilde number four,
Ampersand bracket bracket dot dot slash,
Vertical-bar curly-bracket comma comma CRASH.*
