Can You Imagine That? #Outage #CyberWar #CypherPoems

Originally published at

Managers & engineers are fighting.

Service outage the boss is fuming.

Yet firewalls are up and running.

Yes Nexus is switching and routing.

Apps down stock dropping and bearish.

OMG! Users calling and cursing.

CIO tripping and panicking.

Phew! Wishing they had something.

There comes the SecureAppStack.


AMOS is scanning & checking.

Throttling defending and fighting back.

OMG! Users calling and thanking.

The stock is peaking and bullish.

CIO smiling but was nearly leaving.

All chilling AMPSing & rolling.
