As a sequel to last year’s T’was the Night Before Christmas:

Rockefeller_Center_christmas_treeCell phones ring
are you listening
on the web
something’s missing
No server in sight
no one’s sleeping tonight
working in a startup wonderland.

Gone away are regular hours
here to stay because it’s ours.
We sing a new song
and our hours are long
working in a startup wonderland.

Over the weekend we can build a demo
Then pretend that it really works
They’ll say: Are you launched?
we’ll say: No man
But we can do the job
with an angel round.

Later on
we’ll conspire
as we code and perspire.
To face unafraid
the investors who’ve paid
working in a startup wonderland.

In a quarter we’ll build a new version
and get ready for our launch day.
Our parents will still look on with derision
and call us unemployed anyway.

When it rains
ain’t it pouring
Though you worked until the morning
You’ll try to sleep
the 9am standup you’ll keep.
working in a startup wonderland.

Working in a startup wonderland
working in a startup wonderland.
