Bother! Changed the Paradigm

Once I wrote a program,
Made it run,
Made it race against time.
It was a DOS program.
Now it's done,
Since they changed the paradigm.

Once I build a Web site,
Loads of fun:
JavaScript, Flash, QuickTime.
iPads don't display right:
Flash won't run
Since they changed the paradigm.

Once we were employed and feeling quite smug,
Full of that corporate diddley-dum.
Half a million lines of code to debug.
I was the kid at the scrum.

Say, don't you remember?
They called my code.
Servers ran all the time,
Till the site went viral.
Brother, can you spare a dime?
