IT Poetry Competition @ NEC


 


We had an interesting IT poetry competition today…following is the output in chronological order; rights are reserved for the respective self proclaimed poets J


 


It all started when Dean, Director of IT Infrastructure said


 


Sit right back and I'll tell the tale


The tale of a bags of bagels


That started from our favorite store


And are now on the usual tables


 


And Joanne, our senior developer wrote back


 


There once was a programmer named Joanne


Who wrote a program to generate poetry


The poems were lame


The words did not rhyme


And so she had to retry


 


While Nick, Director IT-Development couldn't resist 


 


Dean is so very mean.


He’s started this crazy thread.


Now a competition has started,


I open new emails with dread,


And read verse that makes me scream!


 


And then Jeremy the architect shared the happiness


 


Bagels…


The morning started with dread


Bagels were brought with glee


The office was no longer dead


And now were all happy


 


Concluded by Greg the super developer with the code…


 


When speaking in rhythm and rhyme


The mental effect is sublime


My life would be sweeter


If my verbal meter


Could be Iambic all the time


 


But alas I am paid to write code


I can’t sit here writing my ode


But soon I’ll repose


And finish my prose


When I’m back in my humble abode


 


Could it be that my two lives could blend?


If (Nick not isLooking) then End


Else


dim wits as double


me.now = trouble


 


While (paycheck.needing)


Work()


wend
