A bit about me and the journey which led to the poem above.
I have written poetry throughout my career; It has offered a balance to the mathematics and rigid constraints of engineering.
At Exeltech I connected with the staff and managers very quickly, not only on an engineering and public service basis, yet also on a deeper and poetic level. Soon I was to be referred to as the poet laureate of Exeltech, wright before reading a poem in front of the company for the first time. It was an amazing and liberating experience.
Shortly thereafter I began to toy with an idea for a poem, Exeltech, the excellence you expect.
These lines lived with me for some time, occasionally getting jotted down in a new version. Recently on my typical walk, eat an apple lunch, the words came into view a bit more clearly.
I hope you enjoyed
