Beating Drums

The drums, the drums, always pounding and pulsing...they never stop. 

Lots of drum beating going on at work today, trying to flush answers out from people in other offices. What is Italy's install base, boom boom boom? Where are the parts for Argentina, boom boom boom? Where is that defective part and when will it be received, boom boom boom? We set reminders and beat the drums because the questions have been asked and have not yet been answered. We need answers, boom boom boom, my boss writes me. We need help, boom boom boom, the other teams signal me. What's in India's inventory, boom boom boom?  How can we get an answer, boom boom boom?

When will this end, boom boom boom boom boom?

But as we all know from books, movies and life, the danger is when the drums stop.
