A Poem Before OpenWorld

(with apologies to Clement C. Moore)

By Karen Shamban

‘Twas the days before OpenWorld, and all through the city
Many people were working, for them not take pity;
At Moscone the reg booths were built with true care,
Knowing that thousands would soon be right there;

The riggers on Howard were raising the tent,
The results are all worth it, the money well spent;
Knowing that many the team will come see,

Backstage the techs and designers do work,
Ensuring the keynotes will see not a quirk;
Here many things social will come to fruition,
Use Twitter or Facebook or your intuition,

Exhibits there are many in two great big halls,
Moscone West, Moscone South—who needs those malls?
There will be great music throughout all the town,
See some or see all and you won’t wear a frown,

The sessions are thousands, and demos, it’s true,
Labs, lounges, and meetups there are more than a few;
You can shuttle, and hustle, and pedicab while there,
Getting from one place to another can take quite a flair,

So let the conference begin and the thousands descend,
Throughout San Francisco their ways they will wend;
It’s Larry’s big keynotes they all come to hear,
Let Oracle OpenWorld begin - it's the best of the year!
