How much land does a man need?

Much philosophical discussion was done following fresh announcements confirming market conditions.

Various platitudes were discussed and self was assured that equanimity is key. ( That self was already in warp 10 after 3 cups of strong coffee may or may not have had much to do with it)

Then fresh news from nn confirmed further worsening plans. After which even coffee induced warp state wasn't good enough..

In such cases, one turns to poetry:
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.


The beauty of poetry is that its not straitjacketed, by fixed meanings, the lines can have a myriad of meanings, different things for different people, and different meanings at different times, even for the same person.

Or as Niranjan put it so succinctly for us software wallahs, ( and i couldn't stop laughing at this one!)
such poetry is like an interface, it binds at runtime!

Grin and berrit everyone!
