Little PC Boxes…

This one comes from Recycled Knowledge.

Little boxes in the colo,

Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,

Little boxes, little boxes,

Little boxes, all the same.

There’s a Dell one and a Sun one

And a Blue one and a Compaq one

And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky

And they all run just the same.

And the folks that write the programs

All go to the university,

And they all get put in cubicles,

Little boxes, all the same.

And write systems for e-commerce

And XML Web Services,

And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky

And they all look just the same.

And they all play their RPGs,

And write in their blogs by night,

And they all have pretty pictures,

Pretty pictures, all the same.

And the pictures all have metadata

And they export it with RDF

And they all get put in aggregators

And they all come out the same.

And the geeks go into business,

And their start-ups raise some capital

And their code gets put in boxes,

Little boxes, all the same.

There’s a Perl one and a Java one

And a Lisp one and a Python one

And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky

And they all lose just the same.
