How to see into the array

In the deep dark realms of the SQL
My mind spirals out of control
I feel weary, weakened by the semi-colon
Damaged by the stripslash

But ‘array!’

The Wandering Maverick
perched on my shoulder
shows me the way

I can see what is hidden there
with an echo
There before me lies what I could not see

Now I may seek some understanding
