AntiPattern Riddle #727 Aug 2008
q. Higher management thought I was a great idea,
Of course without any technical evaluation.
You were encouraged to use me lock, stock, and barrel;
But soon it was realized I was a huge frustration.
Then I was shelved with the other misfit silver bullets;
To be replaced with something that really works.
Now I’m just a memory of what should not have been,
and the only mention of me is with disdain and smirks!
a. Boat Anchor
