Mgmt: “We have another deadline, this team has got to scrum.
We’re sprinting all directions; it’s pandemonium.”
Team: “We’re working at out hardest, with our backs against the wall.
Push us any harder, I’m afraid there’ll be a brawl.”
Mgmt: “Nonetheless, we need to huddle; let’s all work through lunch.
The food will be provided.”
Team: “Then I guess we’ll spike the punch.”

Next time your spirits fall:
Though life may not be fair,

How many good writers in WordPress?
Let’s tally the stars in the sky.

They travel in packs as they hunt through the night.
Who are these new claimants to le haute couture
Who look underfed although dressed in fine fur?

Our lives are short, and every minute counts;
The honor I feel therefore only mounts.
A hundred willing SPAM-ees for my dreck?
A hundred souls in need of Prilosec.
My fellow writers, thank you for subscribing.
With gratitude I thank you for imbibing.
Without your Likes and your encouragement,
This cyberspace again would be for rent,
And all my sing-song ramblings would be spent
On soulless air and die in firmament.
Thank you so much for taking interest in my quirky little rhyme space. If you can possibly stand it, I’ll keep ’em coming.
And especial thanks to Harry of Poet’s Corner, for helping me get this blog set up and for allowing me to post to his awesome site. And speaking of Poet’s Corner, I’m also posting this badge with pride, denoting a huge tally of Likes garnered there:
Blogging indeed can be both fun and fulfilling. 🙂
