// Poetic voice calculator in Golang
package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
    const eecAgeAtBeginning, eecAgeAtVoice = 8, 22
    const meAgeAtBeginning = 67

    // Based on the experience of e e cummings...
    fmt.Printf("I will be %v years old when I achieve my poetic voice.\n", 
        eecAgeAtVoice - eecAgeAtBeginning + meAgeAtBeginning)

You can cut and paste this into the Go Playground at, but I’ll save you the trouble (or the effort of doing the math yourself)… it will print: ”I will be 81 years old when I achieve my poetic voice.”
