Git Frost

Because this is how my morning is going, I decided to commemorate it with a poem:

Edit: Title suggested by @0x56, thanks!

The Branch Not Maintained

Two branches diverged in a project on Git,
And sorry I could not push to both
And be one designer, long I sit
And analyzed one as best as I could
Through the tangled CSS undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because the styling was basic and bare;
Though having been cloned the developer there
Had built them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
Awaiting the project’s first pull request.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted the first would ever be addressed.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two branches diverged on Git, and Iā€”
I pulled the one less traveled by,
And now there are several merge conflicts.
