A Project Manager’s Dilemma

It is so very hard to cope with such a platitudinous scope; vague and unclear, I’ll tell you right here, of making it we have no hope.

The goal is so very elastic, based on claims fantastic. Slick presentations, and proclamations scouched in language bombastic.

I’ve deployed many dark arts. Simulations and Gantt Charts. All to no avail, my project will fail. I may as well be throwing darts.

My project, like shifting sand, is starting to get out of hand. Despite all attempts sit still makes no sense. I really think it should be canned.

This truth spinning round in my head is better left unsaid. If I were to try it, they’d only deny it and give me the sack instead.
