Ahem… A Poem… In Celebration of 7 Years

Dear Marvel Marketers… from a future Date

Congratulations on your 7 year birthday… Celebrate!

That went fast, or so it’s easy now to proclaim,

But I know we really remember every brick and stone we laid

We remember all the friends along the way

Those who cheered or simply listened to what we had to say

And wow what amazing employees joined along the way

And much #gratitude for them every single day

And sometimes their work leaves little to say

For it is inspires us all even today

And #gratitude for the clients who trusted us early on

To help their digital transformation from here to beyond

And #gratitude to our industry friends and partners for their support

Who always remember us in their amazing industry efforts

And all Superheroes battle villains from time to time

But never did it disrupt the journey or beauty of the climb

And #gratitude to those who let us help through #MPACT

When we were the ones gaining through service… that’s a fact.

And #gratitude for 7 years of lessons learned

And #gratitude for 7 years of badges earned

And #gratitude for 7 years of opportunities to give back

And #gratitude of 7 years of remembering that important fact

And let’s not forget the #gratitude for courage to swing big

And let’s not forget the fortitude and required grit

And let’s take a minute to reflect on our world tour… 

San Mateo, Austin, Belfast… Stay tuned for more

Let’s celebrate our amazing Pioneers

Without whom there would be no reason for cheers

Here is to Team Purple and the Marketo Nation

Here is to Engagio, and congrats on the acquisition

Let’s not forget Scott’s incredible Martech Stack

That’s kept us all busy… and  all 7 years at that

And then among all this celebration, let’s be true

That all great success has loss, too

#Gratitude for the sacrifices made by others

During pandemics and hopefully no others

Thank you to the front line helpers and the bravery

You gave us all strength in a major way

And do not despair on what may come

The Great Pause gave us lessons granted only to some

We learned to stop and take a breath

We learned to soften every step

We learned how heroes emerge

Almost the minute we felt submerged 

Some sewed masks as their superpower

Some worked every waking hour

Some helped neighbors and the elderly

Some took to educating everybody

But we saw most choose hope over despair

And we saw love, honesty and care

And so we have #gratitude for success even with difficulty

And #gratitude that we know the importance of humility

And the next 7 years will be better than the first

And our goals give us a special kind of thirst

Of hope and growth that lets us make and MPACT

And of #gratitude and passion so we can give back

And after we have a big old slice of cake 

And after we take the time to celebrate… 

We hope this success on all of you

Because you really can’t do a description justice, in true

So here is to shared success and cheers

And here is to Marvel Marketers and 7 years.
