Cacophony of Silence

Sometimes, some of your colleagues working in IT will have some downtime (it does happen every once in blue moon) and it is vital to use it well.

Therefore, in the light of recent “outages” he has written us somewhat known tune…

Hello Mediacom, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a connection softly creeping
Dropped down while I was sleeping
And the ticket that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of offline silence

In restless tickets I walked alone

Narrow queues of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a Meraki light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw

Ten thousand connections, maybe more
Interfaces talking without speaking
Interfaces hearing without listening
Clients writing mails that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools, said I, you do not know

Data loss like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the ethernet god they made
And the network flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the ethernet said, the words of data loss are written on the Meraki logs
And printer calls
And whispered in the sounds of silence
