Ah, thanks so much; I've been looking for that one for years! You don't
happen to have "The Computer Operator," do you? Same rhythm, starts with
"Feet winging, heart singing, he trots through the door; so happy to be
midst the clatter and roar"

From there I can only remember tidbits...

The Last Bug - author unknown

"No program is perfect,"
they said with a shrug.
"The client is happy,
What's one little bug?"

But he was determined
as others went home,
to dig out the flowchart
and go it alone.

The night became morning,
the room became cluttered,
with memory dumps,
"I'm close now", he muttered.

Chain-smoking, cold coffee,
with logic, deduction,
"I've got it!" he cried,
"Just change this instruction!"

Then change two, then change more,
as day followed night.
There was a solution,
he would get it right!

It still wasn't perfect,
as year followed year,
and strangers would comment,
"Is that guy still here?"

He died at the console,
of hunger and thirst.
Next day he was buried,
Face down, Nine edge first.

His wife, through her tears,
accepted his fate.
"He's not really gone,
he's just working late."

And the last bug in sight,
an ant passing by,
saluted his tombstone,
and whispered, "Nice try."

And when the time comes for that final upload, remember: have your body

buried "face down, 9-edge first."
