An Ode ActiveMQ

It seems that a few people have been scarred by experiences with just about any developer technology.  Every single one probably has a detractor.  Today, a (probably developer) on twitter led me to one of the more interesting mediums for criticizing a technology - An ode in the style of Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham:

Ode to ActiveMQ

I do not like it in my box.

I do not like it, it’s a pox.

I do not want it in my house.

I do not click it with a mouse.

I do not like it remote or local.

I do not like it more than sql.

I do not like active mq.

I do not like it, nor should you.


At least he chose to do something artistic with his opinion, rather than rant about it.  This is simple and to the point.

Wanna share an ode of your own?
