Alphabet Soup

Alphabet is actually an acronym. Acronyms Let the Powerful and Helpless Address Business and Electronics Terminology.

Give me a C! C!
Give me an R! R!
Give me an M! M!
What does that spell?

....?
Communication Rejection Message?
Charlie's Rock Medley?
Change-Resistant Management?
Computer Rack Meltdown?
Customer Relationship Management?

CRM, DMS, oh, this acronymic mess,
from analysts like Aberdeen Group,
ERP, R&D,
SOS ASAP! (You've got to)
Save me from this alphabet soup!

Acronyms are perfect if you want to save some time
Some will spend a dollar simply trying to save a dime
Acronyms will save you from the words you can't pronounce
Some think (the) Wiz of Oz is short for Wizard of Ounce

D is distribution, or it's Digital.(or) Direct?
I can mean most anything, except for intellect;
M is usually Medium, or management - or both;
XXX may be a kiss or something without clothes.

Acronyms protect you, you can wear them like a mask,
No one in the audience has guts enough to ask;
Even if they do, they'll be no wiser after all.
Life's too short for words. Or maybe brains are just too small.

Bruker du forkortelser, så sparer du jo tid,
Og du slipper unna ord du neppe klarer si.
Og du er'kke riktig sikker på hva de betyr,
Joda, Keiserens nye klær er tidens eventyr.

Hvis du bruker engelsk, er du sikker på suksess,
Barnehagens tøffeste sang Skjlåvvsju je je je,
Hvis folk ikke skjønner, er det desto bedre, dét:
For da kan de ikke se hva du bløffer med.
