Apple WWDC poem

on Sunday, June 8, 2008


Standing in the rain, with his head hung low
Couldnt get a ticket, it was a sold out show;
Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene
Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream

He heard one Steve Jobs, just blew him away
He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day
Bought a beat up iPod
Touch in a secondhand store
Didnt know how to use it, but he knew for sure

That one iPod, felt good in his hands
Didnt take long, to install the SDK
Just one iPod, slung way down low
Was one way ticket, only one way to go.

So he started hackin
Aint never gonna stop.
Gotta keep on hackin
Someday he's gonna make it to the top.

And be a WWDC hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a WWDC hero
He took one iPod, WWDC hero, stars in his eyes
WWDC hero, he'll go live tonight

In a room without a light, in a heavy downpour
Thought he passed his own shadow, by the coldroom door;
Like a trip through the past, to that day in the rain
And that one Steve Jobs made his whole life change

Now he needs to keep hackin
He just can't stop
Gotta keep on hackin
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a WWDC hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a WWDC hero, got stars in his eyes
Yeah, WWDC hero, got stars in his eyes
With that one iPod he'll go live
Go live tonight!
