Does it work? A testing poem

If you like either of


then you might like my latest poem

So, does it work?

They ask
Eager anticipation
Strained expectation
They long for the elation of validation
For their creation

It works on my machine
And the code looks oh so clean
And from the unit testing I can gleam
All is working
So it seems

So, does it work?

I’ll instigate an investigation
Think about the context situation
People of all sorts
And their variation
Accessible personas and maybe a simulation

I’ll examine the foundation
Report my observation
And if there’s any recommendation
I’ll happily give a verbalisation
Of the points in my notation

So, does it work?

I can see your animation
As I check your installation
As we run the integration
We will gain illumination
And ensure no degradation

So, does it work?

I’m not one for exaggeration
As I ponder my interpretation
Of the myriad combination
To begin theorisation
Of the behaviours sophistication


Based on my examination
And with no more procrastination
I’ll give my declaration
With a final proclamation
That it’s a veritable sensation

So to answer your communication
Asking about the classification
I have no hesitation
Declaring my appreciation
Of your wonderful formation

Simply put,

Based on the time allowed and data available I think we have a reasonable level of confidence to move this forward.

Love it! Sometimes it only takes a minute to find out it doesn’t work, but when can you say it does work?!

Adrian, this is a very cool poem! So right!
When I read it, my inner voice sung it as rap song with a nice chorus “so, does it work” :sunglasses:
