May 2, 2014 - Rule #1: Never let a rule get in the way of money

"I can't fix that proposal!" he raved.
"All security, I want it waived."
Admin access? My gawd!
That is just way too broad!
How 'bout just where proposals get saved?

May 1, 2014 - Don't ask, don't tell, just keep customers happy

Is that password guy really that dim?
He won't help, so instead, on a whim
I'll pretend I'm my boss.
Now I'm happy, because
I'm so glad that my boss isn't JIM.

April 30, 2014 - Why we (sometimes) love consultants

The consultant could see trouble brewing
And that I was just sitting there stewing.
'Cause it's just engineers
Or consultants they'll hear.
That's because they all know what they're doing.

The consultant said, "Worries? I'll quell them.
All their doubts, I will surely dispel them.
I will use all your specs.
I'll bet no one objects.
You just need a consultant to tell them."

I would say that two cans
And a string would be way more effective.

April 28, 2014 - Circular logic, tight loop

With new software, it couldn't be plainer.
I'll need training. That's quite the no-brainer.
But install it all first?
Soon I'll be so well-versed
That I soon wind up training the trainer.
