SIGIA-L: A Poem for IA's

As I've been socked in for the last two months or so on a major project, I
haven't had any time to do more than flash through the list's various
contributions. But it's been like a lifeline. Time to give something back!
This seems like such a good IA anthem.
For every parcel I stoop down to seize
I lose some other off my arms and knees,
And the whole pile is slipping, bottles, buns,
Extremes too hard to comprehend at. once
Yet nothing I should care to leave behind.
With all I have to hold with hand and mind
And heart, if need be, I will do my best.
To keep their building balanced at my breast.
I crouch down to prevent them as they fall;
Then sit down in the middle of them all.
I had to drop the armful in the road
And try to stack them in a better load.

PS--On my project I'm now at the "stacking them in a better load" phase.
Looking forward to LaJolla ...
