Being on-call’s a pain in the seat.
Here’s a plan that just can not be beat:
Get a smartphone just so
There’s one number to know.
We can show folks that it’s really neat!
But while making this smartphone decision,
There’s a boss who would laugh with derision.
“It’s too hard fix code
On that screen!” the boss crowed.
Well, today one might say he’s got vision!
Some executives don’t have a clue
And they have to be told what to do.
She became so perplexed
By her signature text.
She should check in the box labeled “To:”
There’s an order. We all have to heed it:
Print that data! The users all need it!
Yes, we really excel!
Things are running quite well
Just as long as the users don’t read it.
“All our systems are now going under!
But don’t touch them!” I heard my boss thunder.
“We must hear from support!”
Then I made a retort,
“Doing nothing’s a serious blunder!”
So we worked so the systems won’t fail.
And we wrote down each tiny detail.
Said my boss, "It’s a slight!"
Though we did what was right.
Can’t I tell him to just go to hail?
“What is making my trash disappear?”
“You’ve deleted it. That’s crystal clear.”
I bet he’d blow a gasket
If his own waste basket
Was emptied just four times a year.
