Two meetings was I invited to,
And sorry I could not both attend,
at two o'clock, what could I do,
the time was firm for each, I knew,
so I composed regrets to send.
I chose the meeting Paul had called
because my thoughts were needed there,
and progress on V2 was stalled
because the techs were so enthralled
with a framework with no market share.
And while Paul's engineers discussed
Their plans for building on Hadoop,
And writing all their code in Rust,
And if the crowdsource trend is bust;
I thought about that other group.
I'll have to read the notes they took,
No matter how obtuse or dense,
and at their data models look,
and find a time I can rebook,
If I am to make a difference.
.... apologies to Robert Frost.
