January 6 - 10, 2014

January 10, 2014 - Priorities

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.

January 9, 2014 - Safety First

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.

January 8, 2014 - Emergency, redefined

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!"

January 7, 2014 - When we say it's the end, we mean THE END, right?

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."

January 6, 2014 - It's January. Do you know where your holidays are?

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?
