Minerva is my muse as I draft new coding guidelines:
‘Never shall one use GOTO or OPNQRYF’.
Enforcement of these rules is a challenge to be faced
with contractors, like mules, resisting every point I’ve traced.
The CIO still codes, and he thinks he has great skills;
to criticize ill bodes, though his work the system kills.
Myself, I am a fan of some nice encapsulation.
Spaghetti code I ban, though it is small consolation;
for legacy approach in this business application
is like a nasty roach – survives despite my best intentions.
