[itsdifferent] And lines to code before before they beep


This poem is tribute to all those software engineers/programmers who spend sleepless nights writing quality software and who are governed by dumb bosses who take the credit.

And lines to code before before they beep

By Jaideep Satghare

Here I sit holding my head,
lamenting over a thread long dead,
drowsy eyes longing for a cosy bed
so much that a thread once green now appears red.

To sleep or not to sleep that was the question,
in these cubicles - the coder's last bastion.
Debugging the code had taken its toll,
felt like my head had a big hole

Single-stepping thru the mammoth code,
I hardly remember dozing off on the keyboard.
Until I was awakened by that familiar sound
of my manager barking on the phone like a bloodhound

"The code had been delivered , the money already taken
if you don't fix this they will fry me like bacon",
sobbed the manager by now visibly shaken
the lion had just turned into a boneless chicken

So here I am, sitting so very late
contemplating my poor own fate
when tomorrow this code will be in production
and the manager on leave, for a "tooth extraction"

-A poem by Jaideep Satghare
