Keeping in view this Paradigm Swift
for me, them and you,
a two-sided 'gift'
Life is complex enough,
and nothing is simple.
The surface is rough
with many a dimple.
If you endeavor
to squirm, shake and shirk,
it may mean you never
complete any work!
Thus I present in prosaic postulation
this systems analysis syllogism
clipped from memory,
having been parsed
from the vast voluminous database
'twixt colleague Tom's ears,
regarding the fiery pace
of ostensible innovation in the software realm.
He damn sure knows a thing or two,
though he wears a bit of gray about the temples.
