Rhythm

Watch the rhythm of the beats in your headphones

Match steps with the rain pouring out your window

With the music in your heart and the jump in your feet

When you want to leave the mundane day and leap and soar

When cluster headaches have come and gone

When the dusk is over but still far is the dawn

When you reach half your life wishing to be reborn

Too tired to be a knight you want to be a pawn

When you marvel at sunsets and days gone by

When memories hit you between the eyes

When despite your experiences you still feel surprise

When you start disliking the truth for more pretty lies

The Rhythm is strong and it will get you Anne

Theres not a thing you can do about it if you can

We wished  we walked away but instead we ran

It is better to ditch your dignity and just be alive man

Credo

I am thinking but

my mind is blank

I used to run like a cheetah

now I crawl like a tank

I used to be high

with dreams desires and notions

Now I seek peace and quiet

Away from commotions

Did I suddenly grow old

Did my bones feel the cold

Winter comes to my household

Will we survive or will we fold

I have dodged and swerved

I have bit bullets and navigated many a curve

As I polish my steel Valerian

I leave behind women whom I love

My pain is masked in my headphones

My glasses hide that I am Superman

There were little obstacles I could dodge when younger

When they asked for volunteers I used to say I can

Now I am cynical and in my middle age

My bank balance has quelled my rage

They tell me I will recover this is just a phase

I don’t care any more for he spotless memories I need to erase

What is reality and what is a farce

What were dilemmas and what was confusion

What was necessity and what is greed

What is stubbornness and what is my creed

Map Reduce

My queries are stuck in the wax of a bee hive

No matter the file system I still long to be alive

Unfortunately the cluster seems slow to go

I would like when the task is over you know

In a motley adventure of geekdom and business kingdom

I long to buy a guitar and its strings gently strum

Machine learning proved I have learnt nothing so far

Deep learning proved shallow and left a scar

Python batteries to climb the back of elephants

Algorithms that prove humans are still relevant

Dirty Dancing with Dirty Data again

Map Reduce my agony Divide and Conquer my pain

Highs and Lows of BiPolar Brains

 

Love gets me high

Alone I get too low

Coffee makes me run faster

Beer makes me go slow

 

Swimming makes me calmer

Running gets me up and about

Coding makes my pulse race

The aftermath of loneliness is doubt

 

Music is like a gift from God

Too much work and I get high again

Blowing up small  stuff to argue more

Till I sleep to calm the brain
