A lot of people ask me about my profession and get bewildered when I tell them that I am a Chartered Accountant (CA) (Equivalent to a CPA). So this is a poem I have written dedicated to all the CA’s and CA students which is a humorous take on accounting, with some deep insights.
Do let me know if you enjoy reading it and if you could decode the message behind this poem 🙂
Walking towards the border,
Along the Income Statement,
Debit greeted Credit, “Hi, let’s hangout together”.
From his window on the top line,
With pride in his eyes, Credit looked down,
“I bring Incomes and Gains, you bring losses with you, why do I come with you ?”.
Taken aback with this cold response,
Debit went to his second home, the balance sheet,
Opening his door he spoke aloud, “I hold assets, you are a liability. How can you be so rude !”.
This infuriated Credit many folds,
“I am the giver, you are the receiver, never do forget !”,
He angrily replied.
Quite long they bitterly quarreled,
And then, an Accountant came along,
With an Auditor’s cap, he listened to their stands.
Taking out his forensic glasses,
He audited and investigated,
Reported his qualifications, in his Audit Report.
To Debit & Credit, he then explained,
“You are one soul, divided in two,
Without the other half, you cannot beat”.
Like ebbs and tides and Pen and nib,
You complete one another, like no other can do.
So shake your hands and sing along,
Without you both, Balance Sheet wouldn’t balance !!
