Sympathy for the Devel

Recommended Posts

I was wondering since a long time how it might feel to be a developer for WOFF,

with so little time and such a small crew, and then still so much to get ready and done -

while the fans are ever only asking their menacing "when, when, when will it be ready?"

 

So I started rhyming these Limerick-style lyrics, which could be sung on some old fashioned melody

(don't thry that famous Stones song - it won't fit - I just borrowed their title).

 

I hope some of you will come up with more verses.

I know mine are no proper English, but I guess they are understood. Come on, start rhyming!

 

SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVEL

 

I wonder how it feels to be a devel

Your life must be on quite a diff'rent level

The others have the fun

fly your airplanes in the sun

whilst you can't sleep before some more is done.

 

Each time when you have got a new thing ready

You're happy 'bout your progress going steady

You go and shoot the screens

Then you post the finest scenes

But they're like kids - "when is it ready, daddy?!?"

 

Nutrition's too much coffee, smoke and baked beans

Your family and holidays in Smithereens

Your life is really tough

You only breathe for WOFF

And now your mouse-click-finger is just falling off.

This could be fun if we don't take it too seriously and can poke a little fun at ourselves!

 

"The feature list is so much fuller!

WOFF is gonna be so much cooler!"

But then we see some tart

Ask, "Will the airmen fart?"

And *facepalm*, it's back to the start!

 

(Remember, everyone, it'll be a lot more fun if we don't get to serious!)

Oh yes, definitely - I didn't mean this to be serious at all!

(I hope my funny English DOES appear funny?)

It is, i hope mine is to you as well (if a bit on the crude side...)

 

I have a headache and I'm beat or I'd try another verse...

Oh, it's an expression of frustration when you just cannot believe what the other person has just stated or requested. You put your head down and bring your hand up to cover your face. See here and just for fun, here.
