30 Poems in 30 Days Day 2

First, you have to set up spreadsheets.
Make sure the formulas took.
Correct the errors, be gracious
with suggestions about links.
Call around the country, checking
correcting, coaching.
Call around the country again
advising changes, checking, correcting
Take calls from around the country -
explanations, changes, refusals to change.
File the returned spreadsheets
without overwriting the one you want.
Make new files with combined tabs.
Send them on to HQ with blessings.
And emails which suggest
you are confident
you got it right, but add
"Please call to correct and coach."

(my first regional budget cycle)
