Old Hacker

I am an old soldier waiting for a mission last

I am an old painter hoping for a commission fast

I am an old poet waiting for the inspiration vast

I am an old hacker waiting for the tango in last

But in the meantime and in the meanwhile

There are systems to analyze and code to hack

There are puzzles to solve and theorems to crack

There are bottles of white wine waiting on the rack

There are sunrises to toast and sunsets to stack
