Office Poetry: Fires

Putting out fires – that’s what I do
From morning till night, all the day through,
Well not in the true sense of the phrase,
Never have I stepped into a blaze,
Perhaps “fighting fires” just sounds more noble,
Then shipping a package or faxing a logo,
Then tracking a bug or installing a patch,
Then configuring updates to run in a batch
Then running the conf call or training new hires
It’s much more impressive to be putting out fires
But all of these fires leave one open item,
Why does nobody ever claim to light em?
