the defining moment of a definition

i cant believe it has come to this.hmmmm..defining myself?how to start?i work in a place called the dictionary.my work is critical in the context of creation of a language.i helped build the dictionary from the first page to what it is today.i analyse every new word for its meaning and add it to the dictionary.yes i am judgemental but that’s part of my job.do i exist in the dictionary?yes of course, i do get a place for my occasional self-obsession.

The local isn’t the best place to find an API
So the server is where I go
Me and my friends at the table coding programs
thinking fast and then we talk slow
Come over and start up a conversation with just me
And trust me I’ll give it a chance now
Take my (typing)hands, stop, put ed sheeran on the jukebox
And then we leave it to chance, and now I’m writing like

API, you know I want your response
Your response was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now, follow my feed
I may be crazy, don’t mind me
Say, boy, let’s not code too much
Grab on my status and put that body on me
Come on now, follow my feed
Come, come on now, follow my feed

I’m in love with the shape of you
We get and post like a rest api do
Although my code might be failing too
I’m in love with your body
And last night you just went boom
And now my code sheets read like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

One week in we let the development begin
We’re going out on our first trial
You and me are shifty, so we go all you can repeat
Solve all your bugs and you give a 200 state
We analyse for hours and hours about the success and the failure
And how your server is doing okay
deploy and get in a machine, then i leave my seat
Tell the dj to make the radio play, and I’m singing like..

Come on, give me a response, come on

Come on, give me a status, come on
Come on, give me a response, come on
Come on, give me a status, come on
Come on, give me a response, come on
Come on, give me a status, come on

I am in love with the shape of you
