Weekly Poems 1

Updated: Sep 7, 2022

I write weekly rapid-poetry to my team to give them a bit of creative entertainment that introduces our weekly meeting invitation. They are short, and silly, and often not fully proofed because I try to limit my time to ~5 minutes in making them. Here's a few. I'll share more later.

2019 - 06 - 25

Heave-ho! Heave-ho! Massive data we throw,

And algorithms we make, to help us to know,

how we will get from here to there,

with the appropriate care.

Push, press, push, press.

Our keys are tired they confess.

But realize they need, your fingers, indeed!

As you create information to share,

So that all can compare

observations of late, or an interesting fate,

So, please create your observations in the link,

And then go get a drink*,

And enjoy the rest of your day!

In this postscripted note, as an informative quote,

There is some important info to save.

For if you don’t, you may not believe,

that tomorrow we meet in Mammoth Cave.

*Non-alcoholic, of course

Tardy late these rhyming words remind you of

Something weekly that might cause dread above,

for it is the day where we hope you share

your words of win or of despair.

But better yet these silly phrases, and their silly wit,

will help you to relax any flustered fit,

and will help our team to find the way

through the challenges we found or might find today.


Please don’t forget this detail itty-bitty

that tomorrow our meeting will be in Yosemite

2019 - 06 -12

It's hot, quite hot and that is why

it is splendid, stellar, that we can try

to be inside with conditioned air

and share the thoughts of which we care.

Please provide your thoughts in worded way

in which you wove your week to say

An important find or a biting block

or other ways in which you rock.

2019 - 06 - 05

Time’s shortened breath brings us closer as we sprint

with the myriad of miraculous methods that we multiply mint. And every week we fully find both fun and flounder.

so share your finds to make us safer, sounder.

2019 - 05 - 28

Three days of time resting mind

give us pause to hone our cause.

It lends us time for finding flaws,

and brings a winning cheer much closer, near.

So share your finds that are more than mere

and together thus the wins we’ll find.

2019 - 05 - 21

It rains it pores,

and DNA it soars,

Like stars numbered as the prick sky,

we see their letters as they fly.

Without us such could not be seen,

without our daily diligent views on screen.

Not easy is our effort told

but together now it can be behold

So please share your thought,

or at least give a shot,

on your most important fights

that are being fought:

2019 - 05 - 15

Simply put, a week has past.

While going slow, it seemed so fast.

We accomplished much, so present it here

and share your stats, for all to cheer.

2019 - 05 - 08

The summer sun is always fun,

when we know we have begun

to bring success with great redress

to everything that could be a mess.

So write it here without a tear

And say it so for all to hear:

2019 - 05 - 01

With another week we gain another peek

at the progress of our team and the successes that might be seen

2019 - 04 - 23

Code flowing

Data moving

Solutions forming

Slide deck presenting

Find it all here, in tomorrow's episode of the AC Data meeting. See below to create your own sneak preview.

2019 - 04 -16

To all who write a weekly report!

Find thee here a beautiful deck,

And keep it a quality-short,

lest it all become an overlong wreck.
