Write a haiku about software testing

I very much enjoyed some of the replies to this haiku challenge on LinkedIn:

What do I see now?
What is this in front of me?
I can’t reproduce.

From the jira tree
Tickets fall like autumn leaves
Someone chop it down

Read those logs again
Like a still pond reflecting
A plaintext password…

Bright and fresh new build
With hope I approach to test
Alas! All broken.

I missed this on LinkedIn last week, so I just now posted my entry. I republish it here for your edification and amusement (hopefully):

Testers hate to hear:
“But it works on my machine.”
That dog just don’t hunt!

We test to find something
Things find more things
something becomes everything

Testing is an art,
A quest for perfection’s truth,
Bugs, beware my might

Shift left, be agile:
conversations are condoms
for bug prevention.

Code, untouched and new,
Awaiting trial and judgment,
Testers seek out flaws.

Testing need not be
testing. For it is a bless
ing, to mess with the rules.

Everything’s great?
I come crashing through the walls
Crappy great walls, huh?

A defect is found
But it works on my machine
It’s now a feature

This one sounds like it could be in Ghost of Tsushima

Haha I had to google that and I can say I never played it :smiley:

Many bugs are closed
Done automatically
After years ignored

Though I am not a poet, but testing and QA has always fascinated me. So, I tried my hands on this one:

Builds are made, with changes on the go

Testers and developers are all chasing the flow

Functionality & load, everything needs a glow

Automation entered, Agile said hello

Quicker the releases, more bucks grow
