In pursuit of department security

Old equipment’s disposed of with surety.

But the fish almost flipped

When the screw heads were stripped

 ‘Til a backhoe smashed it to obscurity

When the servers in our corporation
Both had crashed, it was quite a sensation.
For below and above
There’s a massive case of
Condensation formation frustration.

April 6, 2009 - Step 1: Make sure you have performed Step 0

When I got there, the tension was rife.
You could cut all the stress with a knife.
When I went to confirm,
I had found that the term-
inal switch would soon give them whole life.
