It looks cute, but very limited, and lacking in documentation unless I
wasn't looking in the right places.  I like the declarative approach
but I think to really make it interesting, you have to supply more of
the machinery found in functional programming languages.  As one
simple example, I don't see how to extend your sample template (the
song list) to number the items on the list, e.g.

  1. Sounds Like Thunder
  2. Their Hooves Carve Craters in the Earth

where the numbers 1 and 2 are generated by the template.
