Original song Turn, Turn, Turn
Original artist Pete Seeger
Filk author Bridget Spitznagel
Intro The song is largely an excuse to use the title. (The original words really are from Ecclesiastes. :-)

A Core for Ecclesiastes

To everything, turn, turn, turn,
There is a season, turn, turn, turn,
And a time for every process under heaven
A time to design, a time to write code,
A time to run tests, a time to debug,
A time to debug, a time to write docs,
A time to de-bug... forget this, just ship it.

For every hack, turn, turn, turn,
There was a reason, turn, turn, turn,
At the time that the comment wasn't written.

A time to run and a time to dump core
A time to freeze up, a time to reboot
A time to leak bytes, a time to seg fault
A time to deadlock
[stop abruptly]
