Poet's corner

Yesterday (with apologies to Lennon & McCartney)

Yesterday, all those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my database has gone away.
Oh! I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, there's not half the files there used to be
And there's a millstone hanging over me.
The system crashed so suddenly.

I pushed something wrong,
What it was I could not say.
Now my data's gone
And I long for yesterday.

Yesterday 24 backups seemed so far away.
I knew my data base was here to stay.
Now I believe in yesterday.
