Committers beware

Toiling away with hand swept clocks
Meticulously combed-through kilo-SLOCs
More and more features borne to bear, but
For all continents, a continent unaware.
Streams of commits slake developer thirst
Screams from sales pitches, ever averse
Product with no need but a product indeed, as
People with Real Problems want and bleed.
Words on a page, referred to as "plan", but
Equivocate: business, science fair, fighting the man?
Wanton tech fails on bang per buck
Without users, committer, your work doth suck.
