    For your next big conference,
    baby, here’s the thing.
    It’s all about endurance,
    and it’s all about the bling.
    Pick the shoes that leave no strain
    (your feet will thank you later),
    ’cause you want no look of pain
    when pitching in the elevator.
    Pull out all the organ-stops
    to flaunt your nerve and style;
    be confident to show your chops
    and practice your best smile.
    Rock the ‘tude, rock the look,
    and then go out and rock that book!
