Ivanti Has Clever Things to Say on World Poetry Day (Part 1 of 2)
There's a lot going on in the world right now, and one thing we could all use a little more of is Clorox wipes. But also, poetry.
Sure, nothing we've received is exactly Maya Angelou quality, but last I checked C's got degrees. And participation trophies are well into their second or even third generation by now.
So in the spirit of gold stars for everyone, here are a few IT-related poems from our brilliant Ivanti Insiders.
Listen! Do you hear that?
The sound of Work around me.
Like Music that plays among us.
With Accents, Crescendos, Phrases and Themes.
As Life is a Song we play, so is the Help Desk.
Andrew Fulton, Help Desk Analyst
It's not DNS.
There's no way it's DNS.
It was DNS.
Brian, Systems Engineer
Ode to Programming:
I thought I fixed that glitch
and I was right,
but I think on pulling the plug
as many more bugs,
where creeping out at night
Isn't that rich?
Daniel Cogny, Systems Developer
There once was an old IT pro
whose processes were quite slow.
“Try Ivanti” a friend said,
“it will clear up your head
and allow your IT business to grow.”
David Jimenez, Operations Engineer
Blame the firewall
They say, always, for all things
Oops, it was the cause
I quickly bolted out the room,
to find somebody else...
Whose printer kind-of-sort-of worked
to get my paper out.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
Jeff Dejager, IT Analyst II
Who needs speed
Faster than the speed of light
Jeremy, Network Administrator
A haiku in honor of our Desktop Team:
PCs dying everywhere
FitBit goals are met
Kelly Ruston, Systems Analyst
Why do we IT
Because we love helping you
Your PC is dead
Mark, PACS/Server Administrator
Roses are red.
You found a new quirk?
Don't call the SysAdmins!
We'll just blame the network.
Michael, System Administrator
To the client I go
Helping make them productive
Mike Abraniuk, Desktop Support Analyst
All computers have this in common
Users are largely the problem
Simple solutions have come and gone
“Have you tried turning it off and back on?”
Patrick, Senior Systems Administrator
The helpdesk ticket
Dear Internet, Help 404.
The soul withers more!
Paul Kimberley, Team Leader
Oh Microsoft O365
Email coming all the time
Outlook full again
App is not working
No it is not Ivanti
Reboot your PC
Robert, Systems Architect
Blame the patches!
But we need to do the patches,
Blame the patches!
Ross, Systems Engineer
I walk inside and heave a sigh.
The lights the sounds, everyone's running around.
I take my seat and crack my knuckles,
"Those silly people" I chuckle.
With a few simply strokes I am able to repair.
All has not been lost, do not despair.
No one remembers the IT lads gone by.
Except for those of us heaving the sigh...
Ryan Black, Systems Administrator
