Impressive combination

Dear Lord of Haikus,
I submit to thee my humble submission, for review by thy honorable eyes…

Oh where art thou my,
elusive analytics
of web visitors?

look how I beckon
thee, for thy ghastly insight
to convince HiPPos!

I sit and measure,
then twitch and search forever,
to finally find…

core nuggets of gold,
in recent emails of mine…
chance! a stroke of luck!

Jim Sterne gives a-way!
a free pass to the summit
to D.C. he say!

Web Gurus galore!
all the optimization,
networking, and more!

tests are calling from afar
thou must come hither!

by plane, train, or car?
No! by eMetrics Haikus
I reach for thy star!
