Internal Audit Haikus

Some of my favorite Internal Audit haikus

The numbers don’t add
Leading to questions and fear
No fraud – bad audit
See B.1.5.c.c.6
Reference nightmare
The lines turn blurry
Checking ticing and tieing
Supervising sucks
Audit tears flow down
Full days work - ten hours - poof
Should have saved files
Criteria, Cause,
Condition, Effect, Action.
What was the question?
Matching ruby red
Pillars flow line after line.
Not a good heat map
Good fieldwork planning
Tests. Samples. More important
Find the closest bar.
Single drop spills
Starting a flow. Water. Words.
Fraudster confession
Leaves drift in water.
Glaciers creep. Shadows grow long.
Will this meeting end?

Please provide your favorite haikus.  Remember the rules.  Three lines - first line five syllables, second line seven syllables, third line five syllables.
