When Wikis Get Old: Questions in Verse

What will happen when wikis get old?
Will all their linkers become clinkers?
Will the data that was beta start to fade? ah!
What will happen when wikis get old?
Will they have to unload tons of out-of-date code?
Will they have to erase to free up some space?
What will happen when wikis get old?
Will wikites learn that they have to return?
Will they see that their fate is to often update?
What will happen when wikis get old?


Comment in verse if you can.

What will happen when wikis get old?
Will they admit that their wiki idea was s**t?
Will they blam all of the spam?
Will they send to the floors the 404s?
Will we not be content with the content?

Will old wikis announce, like J. Alfred Prufrock, "I grow old, I grow old. I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled?"

What will happen when wikis get old?
Will they add cute characters like aging sitcoms?
Will they start to advertize Coke and Bacardi rum?

I am back from vacation and find a surprise
Comments on wikis from gals and from guys
Who know that wikis will get old just like us.
I guess it's a reason to cuss!

When wikis will grow, may they be structured
And may all their readers be well reassured
It's us who make them, it's no wait and see
We ourselves make the good, the bad and the wiki
So may they become a functionnality
Integrated in all sites, with credibility
;)

When wikis grow old
Like mountains grown time weary
New data storage
