A Developer’s Ode to a Tester

Oh tester why dost  thou despair?
The code is right

of this we are aware!

We verify. We know what we do know

No need to doubt and think of all this woe!

Instead be bright and bring us certainty,

Let Done be Done, thus ends this homily!

A Tester’s Ode to a Developer———————————

Oh Developer why does thee so boast?

When we ran your perfect code it turned into toast.

Be sure that of this we do not jest.

Know that you are just like the rest.

We appreciate the work that you provide to us.

As Testers we are assured that our job will always be needed as thus.

So please get back to your keyboard and create a new bug.

Thus ends this friendly plug.

(I was hoping someone would do a response…thanks Jim)
