Software Professional

Inspired by LIFE!!



Long hours sitting in the office, sipping the umpteenth coffees ,
Living on a diet of coke, they choke if they don’t have their daily smoke.
Working on a 30K Salary a month, they feel tired and stretched.
Oh nothing is good enough, nothing is good enough.

Joining Google, Yahoo are their dreams, with the messengers ruling their screens
Job sites, new roles search are the norms of the lives,
He is a person whose inter personal skills are in hives.
Oh nothing is good enough, nothing is good enough.

With the appraisal around the corner, they hope to get good ratings on.
When the raise they get, is full of sh*t; they threaten to quit
Meetings with managers, meetings with finance, in the end a very few get their dues,
Oh nothing is good enough, nothing is good enough.

Some get to go onsite, others don’t take the bait.
They set the dates, when the company lets open the gates
This cycle goes on, Oh nothing is good , Oh nothing is good.

Viveka
Is this reflection or melancholy? Looks likes your singledom in life should end soon. Still, I got to accept, there is something true in what you reflect.

how true! good one, vivek!

life of an IT prof is a paradox, isn't it? big pay, wealthy life on the outside and yet so much dissatisfaction brewing inside!
