We here at Dropbox have always had a fondness for great code, great food, but also for great poetry. Continuing a tradition that began with our Linux haikus, we recently held a giveaway for several lifetime Dropbox accounts but with a catch– we’d award bonus points to the entries that were written in limerick form (If you don’t know what a limerick is, check this out). And now, a year later (to the date!), we’re honored to once again show you the poetic prowess of our userbase:
With Dropbox your files are near.
Wherever you travel, they’re here.
From Woodstock to Lompoc
Just log on—and flash—they appear!

When you find that your files are no more,
you can pick up your jaw off the floor.
With your DropBox account,
there’s no tape drive to mount.
Simply login, download, and restore.

There once was a young lad named Nick,
who needed syncing that was easy and quick.
He got Dropbox running,
the results were quite stunning
thanks to the powerful Web tools, cross-platform support, intuitive user interface, generous free account space, supportive forums, easy sharing features and more that the application offered, making it the only online syncing tool to pick.

There was once a poor dissertator
Who quaked about losing her papers
She installed KDE
Using Dropbox indeed
Now lightning and storms do not scare her
– Sarah D
Von Tag zu Tag noch besser,
im Interface immer kesser,
weltweit herrscht kein Disput,
Dropbox du bist einfach gut!
darum liebe Programmierer, weiter so – nur Mut!

When I travel to London or Rome,
I shut down my desktop at home.
When in need of a file,
I full heartedly smile
and open my dropbox in Chrome.
All the pictures I take while I am away,
are instantly shared in the same simple way:
in my dropbox they’re dropped
and then instantly upped
to my sister in Paris, who uses IE.
Meanwhile, my dad in Quebec,
is also able to track
which places I see
even though, unlike me,
he uses dropbox on a Mac.
So I guess it’s easy to see
why dropbox is essential to me:
it’s flickr and youtube and iTunes combined
but only for people with whom I’m entwined,
and all that without any fee.
