Use collections deque for very fast pop and append operations

from collections import deque

#deque offers very fast append and pop operations on either side.
#So if performance matters and these are the operations that occur often, choose deque
deck = deque(['a','y','t','h', 'o', 'z'])
print deck
print deck
print deck
print deck
print deck
print ''.join(deck) + ' rocks'

deque(['a', 'y', 't', 'h', 'o', 'z'])
deque(['y', 't', 'h', 'o', 'z'])
deque(['y', 't', 'h', 'o'])
deque(['p', 'y', 't', 'h', 'o'])
deque(['p', 'y', 't', 'h', 'o', 'n'])
python rocks
