Let’s Interface on This

What you are about to read is a non-poem made out of the most unpoetical substance in the world: office jargon. It is composed entirely of fragments of phraseology heard in actual offices today. The only thing missing is the pronouncements of your own colleagues and superiors. Leave a comment with phrases you hear at the office today, and we’ll incorporate them.

Move forward, resources! Utilize
mandated features. Move our mission forward,
both on the same page as far as timewise.
Utilize ideation, tentatively exploring
a co-venture. It’s important to make sure
we’re trying to match all this energetically
until optimal utilization is achieved.
Utilize value-added services.
