People often invite me to events I’ve either never heard of or want to learn more about before attending. Christian Perry, producer of the SF Beta tech get-togethers, dropped me an email today about his group’s Thursday event. I’ve met Christian before but decided to check out his website. There he offers a compilation of startup poetry including limericks and haikus. Here’s an example:
Sending big files was a chore
Burn CDs, then FedEx? No more!
No more FTP mess
Or clogged in-box stress
With YouSendIt, your business will soar!
I thought that was pretty good, so I decided to pen my own poem:
New Enterprise Associates
NEA was big to start,
But now it’s added $2.5 billion to its cart.
Where will the dollars all go?
Can it possibly make back its dough?
Not if it’s an early-stage investor at heart.
If you’ve got a good poem about a private equity firm, send it my way.
