~Calgon, Take Me Away~
Calgon, take me away,

and soothe my weary soul.

This new software package

is really taking its toll.


Applications are not working

and tempers are flaring.

To the ends of our ropes,

so many of us our nearing.


The threads on our ropes

are so frayed and very weak.

I donít know if itís possible

 to hold on another week.


We knew at the onset,

that this would be a  challenge.

Really, itís been more than that.

Just being here makes us cringe.


Exasperated as we are,

we all try to stay strong,

because once the consultants leave,

we still need to get along.
Author's Notes:
I wrote this in March as my co-workers were going through a software conversion where I work. I just found it in my email today

Now that we've been live with our software for more than 6 months, we still have our issues, but the software consultants are at least gone...whew
