'Twas the night before prod release, when all through the build,
Not a unit test was failing, the developers were thrilled;
The release notes were emailed to users with care,
In hopes that new features, soon would be there;
The BA was nestled all snug in her chair,
With visions of magnitude ready to share;
And I on my QA box, trying not to be stressed,
Had just settled down for a last minute’s test;
When during my test there arose such a clatter,
I opened the error log to see what was the matter;
And what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But an unhandled fault, with its wording unclear;
When I showed it to dev, and he gave me a shrug,
I knew in a moment it must be a bug;
More rapid than eagles, dev’s cursing it came,
And he shouted at testers, and called us by name;
“Now, Jacobson! Now, Zacek! Now, Whiteside and Surapaneni!
On, Cagle! On, Addepalli, on Chang and Damidi!
Stop finding bugs in my web service call!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
And then, in a twinkling, I heard from the hall,
The tester who showed me, scripts can’t test it all;
As I rejected the build, and was turning around,
Into my cube, James Bach came with a bound;
He was dressed really plain, in a baseball-like cap,
And he patted my back for exploring my app;
He had a big white board and a little round belly,
That shook when he diagrammed like a bowlful of jelly;
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And he laughed when he saw RST on my shelf;
Then he spoke about testing, going straight to his work,
And attempted traspection, though he seemed like a jerk;
His eyes -- how they twinkled! his dice games, how merry!
He questioned and quizzed me and that part was scary!
He told me of lessons he taught at STARWEST,
Made an SBT charter and then told me to test;
Then I heard him exclaim, ere he walked out of sight
“Happy testing to all! ...just remember I’m right!”
