T'was the Night Before Christmas At IWP

T'was the night before Christmas
At 3D Robotics
Not an Admin was stirring
Everything was symbiotic

The servers and networks
Aglow in their racks
Were whirring and blinking
With Internet facts

I had on my jammies
With a warm adult drink
And had just settled down
For a late evening think

When all of a sudden
there arose such a clatter
I jumped to my keyboard
to deal with the matter

There on my laptop
In U-Tube like frame
Was an mpeg of Santa
And his reindeer of fame

I watched with great wonder
At the fat man's technique
With file system clean up
... And other things geek

He smiled and winked
At my dumbfounded stare
Then with a wise nod
Rose straight in the air

He “Zoomed” past the rack tops
And the firewalls, proofed.
He joined up with reindeer
Who launched them off - Poof

And when once aloft
He called them by name:
"Now, Dasher! now, Dancer!, now Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! on Cupid! on Donder and Blitzen!”
And they flew from the frame

They rose like a dream
O'er the data center’s glow
Which had lighted like magic
In an organized row

As in wonder I stared
At the elf's rapid flight
I knew that the systems
And networks were all right

And as if in knowing
My state coalescing
He turned back the sleigh
To give us a blessing

"Make a network of joy
With all of your might ...
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night"
