I had written him a letter
which I thought would make things better
And I sent it where they said to
Through the Bugs and Feedback tab
They had rearranged the Bubble
and I guess envisaged trouble
But they showed a lovely movie
Of a chappie in a cab ;)

And an email came directed
Not entirely unexpected
And I think the same was written
By a fellow in a spin
‘twas a Baxter bloke who wrote it
And verbatim I won’t quote it
But I’ll give you just a little taste
Of what was held within

I was valued so it seemed
And that made me feel esteemed
Yes my words were so essential
And my thoughts provided health
As sunshine that the orchid needs
I felt I’d done a week’s good deeds
So I (and Mr Baxter) could
Ensure the Bubble’s wealth

Then I sensed his slight contortions
and the now epic proportions
Of the feedback he was getting
On the lovely bubble site
I’m now sobbing in my tissues
‘Cause he said he’d read my issues
Though he may not now get back to me
I’d really hoped he might

Now attempting to console me
(Or maybe just to roll me)
He said if it’s constructive
He’d even read it twice
But if I suggest promotion
(A quite unlikely notion)
Or tell him something funny
He’d maybe read it thrice.

So I figured twice was plenty
And as I was feeling venty
Constructive using similes
The order of the day
That orchid popped in to my mind
Along with words that I did find
Yes similes are perfect
And amusing in their way

“Now that orchid which you mentioned
And however well intentioned
Is happy when the nice bullshit
around its roots is spread
But don’t spread it round the Bubble
Cause it always causes trouble
If you feed the Bubble bullshit
It’ll surely end up dead”

I have posted then this letter
Which I thought would make things better
And I sent it where they said to
Through the bugs and feedback tab
Still they’ve fiddled with the bubble
And I guess reduced the trouble
But there’s still the same old movie
Of the fellow in the cab

And the email came directed
Yes precisely as suspected
And you would have thought it written
Just to be a bit absurd
‘twas a Field Marshal who wrote it
And there ain’t no need to quote it
It was just the same old letter
And exactly, word for word…

Artist's Description

Just a little something inspired by the touching response to my submission using the “top-notch form” at the Bugs? Problems? Thoughts? window, A portal to the inner sanctum of the Bubble where apparently everything is done with a stapler ;-)

In the form of, and with a few words from, Clancy of the Overflow by Banjo Patterson.
