9/11 - that terrible day.
A new lesson I had to convey.
It is simply not right
To say tapes are off-site
When they're only one building away.
To the offshore team, deaf to our pleas,
I explained, "You can toast those with ease!"
They're a hesitant bunch!
I have got quite a hunch
That those files are all porn in Chinese.
Christmas Eve, when folks wanted to flee,
An emergency change order I'd see.
When I asked of the guy
"An Emergency? Why?"
"That's because the request came from me!"
That IM was really quite odd.
When I read it, I thought, "Oh, my gawd!
Those poor souls! Every one!
Was this dirty deed done
By injection or firing squad?"
But I saw something - of that I'm sure.
Something's wrong. I should offer a cure.
Something sounded quite strange.
I'd suggest that they change
The word "was." It should really be "were."
Showing only the days that were full.
That vacationing calendar's bull.
With the formulas fixed,
I just sat there transfixed:
What the heck's the lead trying to pull?
