Internal Audit Valentines​​

Comments Views

Hey! It’s Valentine’s Day. And what better way to celebrate than to take a loo​k at the various Valentine’s Day sentiments available to and from internal auditors.


Roses are red; violets are blue.

If that’s in the report I’ll come looking for you.


The day has broken bright and clear.

It’s Valentine’s I hear!

The time when people show they care

With thoughts of love and cheer.

I hope this day goes well before

The chaos that ensues,

Because it's time that we report 

On your QA review.


Roses are red; violets are blue.

What drives us to Marketing? Bosses like you.


I may just be a CAE,

But I see all you do.

The way you work so extra hard

When those reports are due.

The background, scope, and summary,

And purpose you're defining.

Now all I ask is, maybe once,

Could you please have a finding?


Roses are red; violets are blue.

Your last report is past overdue.


To find the perfect card for you

I searched both near and far,

One saying that if I were you

I wouldn’t start my car.


Roses are red; violets are blue.

I will pay you back during our peer reviews.


I want to thank you oh so much

For your investigation,

‘Cause thanks to your ineptitude

I’ve paid for my vacation.


And, for those who are paying attention, yes, this is a reprint of a blog post from a number of years ago. But let's keep that our little secret. Happy Valentine's Day.
