The two Sirens aren't Sirens.  The Sirens are seductive concepts who sing
so beautifully of process and technology improvements that they lure 
developers captivated by their song to steer their projects and crash on
unrealistic schedules.  The two monsters that must be navigated between are
legacy systems and unenlightened managers.  One steals developers from new
projects with hundreds of long tentacles; the other creates a whirling
vortex which destroys projects.
